Abstract:
Commentary reports the results of a survey investigating the frequency of total testosterone screening conducted for men with spinal cord injury (SCI) during inpatient rehabilitation at 16 model SCI systems.

The other 15 conducted the screenings when there was a clear indication of clinical need.
