Ultrasound is a very useful tool for diagnosing a wide variety of foot and ankle problems, particularly soft tissue problems. Ultrasound uses sound waves on the body in a way much like radar uses sound waves. The waves hit a targeted area and are bounced back to a recording device, which produces an image. Ultrasound is a completely safe, noninvasive, and painless diagnostic procedure. Our Seattle podiatrists are highly trained in using this diagnostic tool to seek the causes of various foot and ankle problems.
Depending on the symptoms that you describe, your doctor may want to perform a diagnostic ultrasound to find the cause of your foot and ankle pain.
Ultrasound technology, frequently associated with viewing fetuses in utero, is a remarkable tool to help us determine the underlying cause of your foot trouble. At Integrative Foot & Ankle Centers of Washington, our team is able to use this and many other diagnostic tools to help identify what has gone wrong and fix it efficiently.
