There are so many potential medical tests that the doctor could run that it is hard to contain them all in one place. Here is a look at some of the other medical tests that doctors will run or order in order to find an underlying cause of impotence.
Blood Hormone Studies. This will help the doctor determine if there is enough testosterone being produced. If it is not it could narrow down some of the conditions that might be causing the impotence.
Urinalysis. Urinalysis will give the doctor an overview of a number of things from sugar levels, fats and testosterone levels. If any of these substances are lacking it will be able to help direct the doctor where to look for the potential cause of erectile dysfunction.
Duplex Ultrasound. This is believed to be the best way to help detect and find the cause of erectile dysfunction. It is believed that an ultrasound will show the doctors exactly the type of blood flow that is going on in the body. This can help them see if there is a condition like venous leaks that is causing the impotence.
Penile Biothesiometry. Many people believe that impotence can be caused by nerve damage in the genital area. This test will test for nerve responses and can help pinpoint any nerve damage that might be present.
Vasoactive Injection. This is a test that will inject a special dye into the genital area and cause the body to create an erection. A test can then be run to determine the blood flow and other factors which can help see where there might be a problem.
