Title: How does an ultrasound work for checking for peyronies or penile trauma.
Post by: RichardRider01 on January 26, 2021, 08:54:27 AM
Does the urologist use the ultrasound machine himself to check for peyronies or does a nurse use the ultrasound machine and then sends the ultrasound images for the urologist to review. Because I will never ever trust a nurse to determine penile issues such as peyronies and I got yelled at by my family member for saying I wouldn't trust anyone but the urologist to determine the results of the ultrasound. I even had a previous urologist act like I'm alright even though I'm not without and testing so of course I'm going to be defensive. Luckily I have a good urologist now but I want him to review the ultrasound and not anyone else to determine the situation so I don't know.

Peyroines is really easy to diagnose even without an ultrasound. All it takes is a urologist to palpate the plaque and that’s it. For more detailed definition then an ultrasound is done by the urologist and read on the Spot.
