Diagnosis

This file is firstly a copy of Studies
Medline demonstrates the diagnostic development of the use of Prostaglandin E1 (an erection stimulator); Sonography (ultra sound), cavernosography (radiology with a colouring technique), to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

Sonography appears pretty useless at discovering minor grades of penis fracture. The medics have only had the technical inventions to be able to detect minor grades of penis fracture since 1990 when cavernosography is "in its infancy".

MRI (the revolving tube) is reported in only four studies up till 1996 One of these studies says: "only MRI detected the problem in all four patients, MRI should be used when penile fracture is suspected but clinical findings are atypical."

new idea 2007
The problem with MRI is that it doesnt show nerves less than about 1mm. - And as most nerves are very thin they simply dont show up (nerve bundles may be quite thick). Anyway, I dont understand much about it all but apparently dentists have recently developed a more accurate form of diagnosis called digital MRI - this allows a magnification of skin tissue and nerves which may allow a diagnosis.

... Next problem: - persuade your dentist to take pics of your penis .... ten brownie points go to anyone who tries ...
