What is a Diagnostic Ultrasound?
Diagnostic ultrasounds allow podiatrists to visualize and examine the foot, ankle and leg from the inside. It’s a great way to help diagnose issues that can’t been seen on x-rays. This allows our staff to accurately diagnose foot conditions that might otherwise be hard to catch. Ultrasounds are painless with zero side effects. It’s even safer than a traditional x-ray, since it doesn’t involve any radiation and much less expensive than MRI studies.
Ultrasound diagnostics are used to detect the following:
- Foreign Bodies
- Plantar fasciitis
- Bone spurs
- Tendon tears
- And much more!
The ability to accurately diagnose your pain is important. It helps us form a targeted plan to treat your condition. Don’t ignore foot pain because you’re afraid of what it could be!
