A physical examination aims at establishing the performance of your nerves, muscle and blood supply.
An ultrasound test is usually performed on each patient to examine the blood flow within of your penis. There will be a drug that will stimulate an erection, and the doctor will be looking at the monitor to see any possible problems in your arteries and muscle. The imaging helps to determine if there are some blocked arteries as well as control the blood pressure.
