Psychological Evaluation and Psychometry

  • U. Hartmann

Abstract

Psychological diagnosis and evaluation is of major importance within the multidisciplinary examination of erectile dysfunction. In many cases, the significance of psychogenic versus organic pathogenic factors, the existence and intensity of psychopathological symptoms, and relevant relationship factors are more crucial to therapeutic considerations than the medical aspects of evaluation.
