Why would I need an ultrasound for my feet?

Ultrasound takes pictures of soft tissues in your feet that other images, like X-rays, may not be able to see. This allows it to catch difficult-to-see damage, like tendon tears, swelling or thickening in connective tissues, and nerve damage like neuromas. The ability to see these injuries helps specialists like our team at Podiatry Associates, P.C. make accurate diagnoses and prescribe the best foot care treatments.

Just as importantly, this test does not involve any sort of dangerous radiation. It uses high-frequency sound waves that bounce off your tissues at different rates and angles to formulate a picture of soft tissues, even if they are moving. Think of it like sonar, but for your body. Don’t avoid getting an accurate diagnosis because you are concerned about X-rays or invasive tests to diagnose your pain. Let us use ultrasound. Contact Podiatry Associates, P.C. in Parker, Cherry Creek, and Castle Pines, CO, for an appointment today by calling (303) 805-5156 or by using our online form.
