PurposeTo determine the accuracy of ultrasound (US) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the diagnosis of penile fracture and preoperative mapping for modified surgical repair. [] Key MethodMethodsTwenty-five consecutive patients were included in the study prospectively over 29 months (from February 2014 to June 2016). US examination and MRI were performed on all patients and interpreted by two expert radiologists independently.
The Role of Magnetic Resonance Imaging in the Diagnosis of Penile Fracture in Real-Life Emergency Settings: Comparative Analysis with Intraoperative Findings.
Magnetic resonance imaging may be applicable in the emergency setting if the goal is to treat all men who warrant intervention and has high sensitivity and negative predictive value for tunical rupture and concomitant urethral lesions.
Diagnostic performance of MRI and US in suspicion of penile fracture
It is suggested that MRI is more suitable to confirm PF and identify the site of the associated tunica albuginea tear while US is a good tool for ruling out PF.
MRI of the Penis: Indications, Anatomy, and Pathology.
The role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the evaluation of penile pathology as well as the appearance of neoplastic and non-neoplastic entities on MRI will be reviewed.
MRI of the penis
The ability to demonstrate the erectile bodies and vasculature helps to evaluate vascular pathologies such as priapism, Mondor disease, and cavernosal thrombosis and MRI is a useful tool to assess for traumatic abnormalities of the penis.
Multimodality imaging of the male urethra: trauma, infection, neoplasm, and common surgical repairs
The aim of this article is to describe the indications and proper technique for RUG and MRI, their respective image findings in various disease states, and the common surgical techniques and imaging
The role of ultrasound in the diagnosis of penile fracture
The anatomy of the penis, the pathophysiology contributing to penile fracture, and how an inherent understanding of both is vital to the accurate sonographic grading of different fracture types are reviewed.
A study on the ability of panoramic, CT, Cone-beam CT, MRI and ultrasonography in detecting different foreign-bodies in the maxillofacial region (an in-vitro study)
CT-scan can be introduced as the best imaging modality in detecting different foreign-bodies especially non-metallic onesespecially non- metallic ones.
Penile Ultrasound: An Essential Tool in an Emergency Setting (Traumatic and Non-Traumatic Diseases).
US is the key imaging method because it is readily available, safe, cost-effective, and well-tolerated by the patient and can differentiate intracavernosal from extracavernosal hematomas and detect rupture of the tunica albuginea, consistent with penile fracture, that requires early surgical exploration.
Older age and a large tunical tear may be predictors of increased erectile dysfunction rates following penile fracture surgery
Older age and the size of the tunical tear appeared to be correlated with the development of erectile dysfunction, and the patients with ED were older than those without ED.
Current Trends in Medical and Surgical Urology
MRI was performed prior to the repair of a 39-year-old patient presenting with penile fracture involving a focal rupture of the tunica albuginea of the left corpus cavernosa, leading to a change in surgical approach from a sub coronal degloving incision to a penoscrotal incision.


The value of magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnosis of penile fracture
Magnetic resonance imaging is of great value for the diagnosis of penile fracture and well suited for visualising the post-operative healing process, especially for patients with post traumatic erectil disfunction.
MRI of penile fracture: diagnosis and therapeutic follow-up
Serial findings of MRI of corpus cavernosum rupture may suggest the formation of vascularised granulation tissue during cicatrisation in patients with penile fracture.
MR imaging of acute penile fracture.
Magnetic resonance imaging can demonstrate an intact tunica albuginea and the presence of intracavernosal or extratunical hematoma in patients with no penile fracture, and it remains uncertain whether the routine use of contrast material-enhanced MR imaging is justified.
Role of ultraosonography in grading of penile fractures.
Ulasonography is the modality of choice for quick diagnosis, and no other radiological workup is required before surgery, and the defect in corpora was well appreciated.
Penile fracture and magnetic resonance imaging.
MRI provides the ability to identify disruption of the corpus cavernosum due to excellent tissue contrast and Penile Fracture and Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
Penile Fracture: Our Experience in a Tertiary Care Hospital
Although penile fracture is an under-reported urological emergency, its incidence is increasing, and ultrasonography can be very helpful in diagnosis, especially in cases where treatment is delayed.
Penile fracture a review of management
To avoid serious complications and preserve penile function, immediate surgical intervention is recommended in case of penile fracture.

MRI of a 21-year-old man with a penile fracture demonstrated disruption of the tunica albuginea and adjacent hematoma. Both MRI and subsequent retrograde uretrogram showed that the urethra was not
