My test become hard after doppler ultrasound test found, epididymitis infection it having 8 month or more but hardness remains same. Give some suggest?

Recheck: Recommend you again visit your urologist for another exam. If needed, ultrasound can be repeated. Persistent scrotal "hardness" is not common after treatment of bacterial epididymitis. Testicular cancer and uncommon infections, such as tuberculosis, need to considered.

Sonogram (Definition)

An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

I had a penile Doppler ultrasound done but the injection they gave me didn't cause an erection is that normal? But the test result say everything's ok

Context?: The context is unclear as to why you had the workup done and the injection. I am not aware of an injection being given to cause an erection other than treatment for erectile dysfunction with prostaglandin.

What does ur doc say: You don't mention that your doctor feels you need any further tests. People can get preoccupied about their genitals which may be a psychological problem. If there is erectile dysfunction with or without a treatable physical condition, medication such as viagra (sildenafil) or Cialis can be helpful. Psychotherapy may be helpful for any underlying psychological issues.

I had a doppler ultrasound done where they checked my blood flow. They check both legs/arms/pelvic area. Test came back abnormal. What could it be?

I had a doppler ultrasound done where they checked my blood flow. They check both legs/arms/pelvic area. Test came back abnormal. What could it be?

Narrowed artery: I imagine you were having cramps in your legs after walking some distance? The abnormal peripheral doppler study was most likely expressed as an elevated ankle-brachial index. This is a ratio of the blood pressure between the arm and ankle. Values between. 9 & 1.0 are considered normal. Below. 9 suggests artery narrowing and above 1.2 suggests hardening of the arteries.

Is there something they will give me for anxiety when I'm doing the doppler ultrasound?

Is there something they will give me for anxiety when I'm doing the doppler ultrasound?

Not necessary: A doppler ultrasound is a painless exam. There should be no need for an anxiolytic medication. If you have a condition that will cause you to have undue anxiety for an ultrasound exam, you should discuss it with your physician so that proper measures can be taken, and medication prescribed in the rare event that it is needed.

My GP ordered a doppler ultrasound to look at my 'porta hepatis' - what could he be checking for?

Liver: Porta hepatis is the region leading into the liver which contains the blood vessels feeding the liver (hepatic artery and portal vein) and the bile duct which carries bile from the liver and gallbladder to the bowel. It also contains some lymph nodes. Maybe your doctor wants to see how well blood is flowing in the hepatic artery and portal vein?

What exactly is a doppler ultrasound?

What exactly is a doppler ultrasound?

Doppler ultrasound: A doppler ultrasound uses sound waves to measure flow through vessels. When blood goes through a vessel it changes the sound waves in a way that will give us an idea if there is any obstruction or reduction in flow. This is very noninvasive and very helpful.
