3D Imaging for Peyronie's Disease

As reported in Urotoday, for the first time ever 3D imaging has been used to document improvement in patients with penile deformity. As such imaging techniques become more widespread, it should provide us with a more detailed look at how the condition can alter over time and what changes take place as a result of the treatment regimen the patient is taking.

Some peyronie's disease studies have revealed that, from a visual perspective, patients sometimes underestimate and are therefore dissatisfied with improvements that have taken place. With 3D images at hand, it will offer a precise and objective view of the situation rather than a more subjective one. Where the condition no longer impedes sexual functioning, this may lead men to concentrate at what improvement has taken place, rather than what hasn't.

3D imaging should also be useful in obtaining more precise results in future peyronie's disease studies, since measuring improvement and changes by hand or by 2D imaging may not always reveal the full picture.

There were also thermal imaging pictures that were published by therapy clapham that highlights the problematic areas of the male member. Aside from that, professors have made lectures about those images.
