Doppler Tests & Urological Procedures

BOOK APPOINTMENT

What Is a Doppler Test?

A Doppler test is a sophisticated diagnostic tool that generates high-frequency waves to measure blood flow to the penis. It is particularly helpful in evaluating erectile dysfunction (ED). Before the commencement of the procedure, your doctor will likely administer an injection that will cause an erection. During the erectile window that follows, an ultrasound device will gauge the flow of blood to the penis to present the root of the ED.

Why Choose a Doppler Test?

A Doppler test is most often performed on men who have witnessed frequent episodes of erectile dysfunction (ED).

Underlying Problem

A Doppler test can point to the root of erectile dysfunction, by highlighting the exact cause. ED could be triggered by an arterial problem, a venous leak or a combination of the two.

Therapy Selection

A Doppler ultrasound can help your doctor in tailoring a selection of therapies best suited for you.

Is a Doppler Test Right for Me?

A Doppler procedure is recommended if you’ve been suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED). ED can be a significant hurdle in the lead up to ejaculation, in turn, hindering your fertility. If you find that drawing an erection is becoming increasingly difficult, consider consulting your doctor for a Doppler test.

What Are the Steps of a Doppler Test?

On Cloudnine, a Doppler ultrasound is a routine, painless process that stimulates an erection so that the penile curvature, arteries and veins can be examined.

1

Stimulated Penile Erection

The penis is a conducive canvas to draw information from only when it is erect. Hence, your doctor may pass a tiny, lightweight needle through the penis to elicit an erection. In the ten minutes that follow, you should experience a complete erectile stimulation.

2

Penile Examination

An erection provides an effective window for your doctor to examine the curvature of the penis, and to check for any wounds, malformations or indents. Your doctor will also gauge the blood flow, discuss the outcome of the test with you in detail, and walk you through the next possible steps.

What Are the Risks of a Doppler Test?

There is an extremely low likelihood of a Doppler test leading to any significant side effects. The only risk that the procedure potentially poses is an extended erection.

Extended Erection

A stimulated erection that lasts too long could present dangers to the penis. On occasion, an erection that persists beyond the recommended threshold may warrant a reversal injection. On Cloudnine, our fertility consultants take due care to ensure that your erection has begun subsiding before they let you go home.
