Using Ultrasound To Assess Male Organ Health
Total Articles: 1102
Taking steps to maintain good male organ health pays off. A healthier member not only looks better but it is more likely to maintain its function - just as taking care of the body helps it to fulfill its functions more fully. Of course, sometimes even conscientious practitioners of appropriate male organ health develop issues that require a doctor’s assistance. Assessing exactly what the issue is or what might be causing it may require a doctor to conduct tests or use equipment. And, although this may be a surprise to many men, sometimes a doctor may need to have an ultrasound scan done on a man’s male organ.
What is an ultrasound?
An ultrasound scan, also known as sonography and typically just called an ultrasound, is a medical test that utilizes high frequency sound waves. These sound waves can provide a doctor with a picture of the inside of the body. The technology is kind of similar to that which is used in sonar and radar in military operations.
Although ultrasound is most often associated in the public mind with pregnancy, where it is used to allow a doctor to get a good look at the fetus and how it is developing, it is used for other purposes. Basically, if a doctor needs a visual of a person’s internal organs (bladder, kidneys, pancreas, thyroid, etc.), he may want to use an ultrasound.
Why ultrasound a male organ?
Some men may wonder why a member might need an ultrasound? Or if the doctor needs a look inside, why doesn’t he just use an x-ray?
In terms of an x-ray, that’s of limited use when it comes to the member. X-rays are very good for looking at bones, but the manhood doesn’t really have bones - so an ultrasound is a better bet.
As to why an ultrasound might be needed, there could be several reasons. A man who is battling tumescence dysfunction, for example, might benefit from an ultrasound, as this would enable the doctor to better assess the blood flow in the member, as well as how that blood flow gets "trapped" for tumescence.
Ultrasound may also be useful when a man presents with Peyronie’s disease (an excessively curved manhood), as a way of determining the location and extent of plaque build-up, or to examine a man suffering from priapism. It can also detect the presence of male organ stones or a fracture and pinpoint the presence of unwanted tissue masses.
Is it safe?
Ultrasounds are considered a safe procedure. There is no radiation involved, as opposed to x-rays and some other procedures.
Frequently for a male organ ultrasound, an injection will be given to induce tumescence. This may in some cases cause pain or light bruising at the site of the injection.
Using an ultrasound to assess male organ health can enable a doctor to better pinpoint problems and devise appropriate treatment strategies.
Of course, maintaining excellent manhood health requires more than paying a visit to an ultrasound machine. Men can daily support their member health by applying a first class male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). There are many crèmes available, so be sure to locate one which contains both L-arginine and L-carnitine. The former is an amino acid which plays role in the creation of nitric oxide. In turn, nitric oxide helps manhood blood vessels expand to accommodate increased blood flows. L-carnitine has neuroprotective capabilities, which are valuable for helping to maintain an appropriate level of member sensitivity - something which can easily be lost when the manhood is handled too aggressively.
