See the Difference: The Value of Diagnostic Images

Ultrasound on a woman's heelOne of the great things about living in the Castle Pines and Parker areas in Colorado is the abundance of beautiful scenery, all within easy drives (if not closer). Places like the Castlewood Canyon State Park trails boast beautiful views of waterfalls, rock formations, and in some places, even ruins. Sight is a valuable sense that allows you to appreciate the world around you. It also lets you more easily identify and address problems, particularly in the human body. That’s why diagnostic images like X-rays and ultrasound are so valuable for dealing with painful problems of all kinds, including those in your feet and ankles—they let you see the issues.

Diagnostic images are any type of test that takes some kind of picture of the inside of your body. This can include CT scans, MRIs, fluoroscopy, and mammograms, as well as X-rays and ultrasounds, which are among the most common types used for the lower limbs. The images they produce allow specialists to find, identify, and evaluate painful problems so they can be treated.

This makes diagnosing an injury in your lower limbs both easier and more accurate. Many conditions can have similar-feeling symptoms but different damage inside your feet or ankles. The most effective treatments target the specific problem you have, so an accurate diagnosis is important for your recovery. The images an X-ray or ultrasound produces can help rule out problems and pinpoint a culprit, allowing you to get the care that you need.
