Overview


What is MRI Penis Region With Contrast?

A Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Penis Region with Contrast creates a picture of the root (radix), body (corpus), penis epithelium, penis mouth foreskin (prepuce), and surrounding soft tissues (blood vessels, lymph vessels, nerves, vas deferens). The contrast helps in detecting even the smallest tumors, and hence improves the sensitivity and diagnostic accuracy of the MRI scan.

This test is prescribed by the doctor to diagnose priapism (prolonged painful erection), and to find out the presence of any penile tumor/cyst/lump which originates from the penis skin.

  2. To detect phimosis (inability of the tight foreskin of penis to fold off)
  3. To find out the presence of any penile tumor/cancer/cyst/lump which originates from the penis skin.
