Award-Winning Podiatrist For Diagnostic Ultrasound IN SUGAR LAND, KATY, & HOUSTON, TX

Sound Waves That Can Exactly Locate the Source of Your Pain

Diagnostic Ultrasound in sugar land Have you ever had foot or ankle pain that doctors had a hard time figuring out? If so, perhaps you felt frustrated that the pain continued – even after getting treatment. That is because podiatrists not utilizing diagnostic ultrasound technology often cannot fully confirm what is causing your pain. With Foot & Ankle Associates’ advanced diagnostic ultrasound machine, Dr. Vargas can locate the exact reason for your foot or ankle pain. Whether you suffer from Achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, a torn tendon, or a foreign object such as a splinter or shard of glass in your foot, Dr. Marco A. Vargas is able to quickly see what is wrong and how to fix it.

Are you an athlete with pain from inflammation? Podiatrist Dr. Marco A. Vargas can use the diagnostic ultrasound machine to guide cortisone injections into the exact place of your pain and get you fast relief. He can also tell right away whether you have a tear to the muscle or Achilles tendinitis. That lets him heal you sooner so you can get back to the sport you love.

What is Diagnostic Ultrasound?

Many people have heard of ultrasounds because doctors use them to monitor babies during pregnancy. Diagnostic ultrasound makes high frequency sound waves that humans cannot hear with their ears. In podiatry, the machine bounces sound waves off the foot or ankle’s soft tissue or bone structures. This creates an echo, which forms video images that Dr. Vargas can interpret in real time.

The ultrasound machine does not cause pain and it stays outside the body. It is very safe and costs much less than CAT scan or MRI tests. Because it does not give off radiation or magnetization, pregnant moms or people wearing pacemakers can safely have the test.

How Does the Process Work and Feel?

The podiatrist or technician makes contact with the area using a transducer – a device that he or she holds in the hand. This transmits the sound waves and also captures the echo that reflects back to produce the image you see on the computer monitor. You may experience a cooling sensation on your foot at the beginning of treatment. This happens when the podiatrist uses a special gel to complete the contact between your skin and the transducer. You will feel no pain at all and you will be able to speak to the podiatrist at any time during the process.
