Diagnostic Ultrasound By Top Rated Podiatrists In Southwest Houston, TX

Foot And Ankle Ultrasound By Southwest Houston T X PodiatristsUsing Diagnostic Ultrasound for Foot and Ankle Pain from Your Experienced Podiatrist in Southwest Houston, TX

Do you need to identify the source of your foot and ankle pain? Diagnostic ultrasound is a safe and effective tool to assess issues throughout the musculoskeletal system. It is useful for viewing problems with soft tissue, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles. Injured soft tissue would not be able to be adequately identified with the use of x-rays. Ultrasound imaging sends sounds waves to targeted areas that bounce off of internal organs and structures and are interpreted by highly-specialized instruments to create a diagnostic image. When you or someone you love is experiencing significant foot and ankle pain and need to find the root cause of the issue, your Southwest Houston, TX, podiatrist can use diagnostic ultrasound to provide a picture of your soft tissue injury. Learn more about how diagnostic ultrasound can work for you.

Benefits of Diagnostic Ultrasound Imaging

Ultrasound imaging is generally recognized as a safe and effective method of diagnosing a soft tissue condition. Patients that choose ultrasound imaging can expect:

  • Real-time imaging that can show function, anatomy, and movement
  • A pain-free and noninvasive scanning process
  • No use of ionizing radiation
  • Advantages over an MRI in that ultrasound imaging can show more detail in tendon structure at a lower cost
  • Safe use for those with ferromagnetic implants or fragments or cardiac pacemakers

When it comes to diagnostic ultrasound, there are no currently known harmful effects to patients. When a foot or ankle pain problem cannot be identified with x-rays, ultrasound imaging from your podiatrists in Southwest Houston is the next affordable step to identify any existing soft tissue damage impairing movement and function.

Receive Ultrasound Imaging for Safe Soft-tissue Assessment

Your Southwest Houston podiatrist will perform a thorough examination of foot or ankle pain to discover and address underlying reasons. He or she may suggest diagnostic ultrasound to get a clear picture of the function and movement of soft tissue structures as well as to note any injury to muscles, ligaments, and more.
