    Does anyone know if having a radiologist do an x-ray of your penis can find an actual cause of why a person have ED and other problems related to the penis? I am talking to someone on thundersforum and he tells me that I should get an x-ray. I already done the ultrasound of my penis, nocturnal erection test and penis sensitivity test. Has anyone here had an x-ray done before of their penis?

    You should look up "Sex Rays" by Wim Delvoye, a Belgian Artist who worked with X-Rays... I don't think you can see anything on a penis x-ray picture. But, I'm not a doctor anyway....

    You can make an X-ray with contrast medium in the vessels so that you can for instance see if there is any venous leakage.

    This would work.
    I would think if the same information could be obtained using an MRI with some kind of contrast that would be preferable.
    Remember x-rays are a type of radiation that can cause tissue damage and there would be a requirement to protect the testicles as much as possible.
    And that would include finding a safer alternative if one exists.

    Wouldn't your doctor have an answer to this question?

    This procedure probably might be diagnostic if the penis is unusually large and the xray tech is gay .

    I believe the diagnostic of choice is ultrasound

    No, but I had to have a sonogram of one of my balls. Twice.

    The technician, I think, enjoyed it more than I did.
