A specialized near infrared spectrophotometry instrument for noninvasive, continuous monitoring of the hemodynamic events of erection in the human penis has been developed. Its potential application for the diagnostic evaluation of erectile dysfunction was investigated. Thirty-eight patients and 18 volunteer subjects underwent penile near infrared spectrophotometry using an optical sensor probe with wavelength selectivity for hemoglobin absorption spectra. Penile blood volume changes and their… CONTINUE READING
