Nocturnal penile tumescence (NPT) testing for erectile dysfunction involves wearing a monitor on the penis overnight. The data from this monitor is then assessed to analyse how often erections occurred, how long they lasted, and how rigid and large the penis was during the erections. May be carried out at home or in sleep laboratories.
