Mri penis

I am scheduled to have an MRI of my penis next Tuesday and am not sure what to expect. I have not had any luck getting my questions answered by my doctor and all I know about a penis Mri is what I have been able to find out on the inernet. On the internet they talk about getting your penis in position and attaching some sort of surface coil. i have no idea what a surface coil is or what any of it means. They also say it is sometimes necessary to give an injection to help give you an erection so they can get more or better pictures. Considering my penis is REALLY small would that make it more likely that an erection might be necessary" My penis when shrunken sometimes gets down to practicaly nothing with sometimes just the head sticking out and at the best of times when not erect is not very big, not leaving them much to work with. Even erect I am not very big but it would at least be a little bit begger for them to use to get in position to get pictures. I have had MRI's before but not penis Mri. I kbnow about the long tube they put you in for a regular MRI but do not know what to expect for a penis MRI.
Could someone get back to me and let me havesome idea what to expect. Thank you

Re: Mri penis

Sorry, this is a new one on me! I've never heard of a penis MRI. Why do you need an MRI on your penis? Who's idea was this, the doctors? I'll do some searching with you on this! I would love to know myself what a penis MRI procedure is. Lol

Re: Mri penis

LOL. okay, back to your request earlier! I done a bit of internet surfing and this is what I came up with. MRI of the penis is done when a problem cannot be seen from an ultrasound. From what I read, the flaccid penis is pulled up/secured with a bit of tape to your lower belly/ab so that it doesn't flop around, and can be scanned. If a good image is not possible with the penis soft/flaccid, some type of solution/medication is administered. Directly into the penis shaft/head, it didn't say. It did mention something about a coil being used, not saying if it is incerted into the penis or what! It did say that after you are injected with medication/solution, that the patient would then need to message the penis until it is erect so that a better image can be taken. MRI is used for most severe penile problems to detect what is going on. Cases such as fractures to the penis, cancer, tumors, slow urination/post dribbling, lesions/growths/cist, and severe peyrones disease.
Well, there you have it. Good luck! Even the thought of doctor's looking, handling or discussing my penis is scary, but that being said some times we have know choice!
