The Foot and Ankle Clinic of Albuquerque P.C. utilizes ultrasound imaging on a daily basis to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of many foot and ankle conditions. Ultrasound allows us to visualize and diagnose problems related to the soft tissues of the foot including plantar fasciitis, ligament tears or sprains, tendon
tears or sprains, and soft tissue masses like neuroma or ganglion cysts. Many times, the use of an ultrasound can replace the need for an MRI or determine if MRI is needed for surgical planning. Ultrasounds are done in real-time in the office, allowing your physician to provide an image-based diagnosis to explain your symptoms. This allows same day treatment for confirmed soft tissue problems.
A foot and ankle ultrasound can also be used in the office to assist with procedures. Injections are more accurate and successful when guided by the use of an ultrasound. The physician can see both the needle and injection in real time as the medication is delivered to the symptomatic area of the foot and ankle. If you have
any further questions, please do not hesitate to call The Foot and Ankle Clinic of Albuquerque, P.C.
