IMAGING OF THE FOOT & ANKLE

Our office is now equipped with the latest advancement in imaging of the foot and ankle - diagnostic ultrasound. 

This page gives you a brief overview of diagnostic musculo-skeletal ultrasound.

Ultrasound is a non-invasive, non-painful technique performed with high frequency sound waves. unable to be heard by the human ear.  Real time images of soft tissue and bone structures in the foot are obtained as the sound waves bounce off these structures, and the echoes are interpreted as images on a video screen. Many patients are familiar with this technique used during pregnancy to visualize their unborn child.pic of ultrasound unit

Ultrasound imaging allows the foot specialist to confirm a diagnosis in real time, and therefore prescribe a treatment plan faster than traditional methods. Ultrasound is usually used in the diagnosis of soft tissue problems such as:

  • Soft tissue masses
  • Foreign bodies
  • Sprains
  • Neuromas
  • To guide injections
  • Heel pain
  • Plantar Fasciitis

Ultrasound is safe, and much cheaper that MRIs and CAT scans. There are no contraindications. Ultrasound does not produce radiation, or magnetization - pacemaker and pregnant patients are perfectly safe to undergo ultrasound.
