ultrasound for foot pain diagnosis | Albuquerque Expert PodiatristWe are excited to announce that in our continued efforts to offer all of the latest and best treatment options available we have added an ultrasound system. We use ultrasound for both diagnostic imaging and as a treatment aide. We have been using its needle localization capability for trigger point injections and to visualize soft tissue structures.

Ultrasound Offers Medical Benefits You Can Literally See

In keeping with our commitment to providing the best medical care possible, we now include point-of-care ultrasound among our services. This amazing technology enables us to see your muscles, tendons, bones, and tissue “live” on a viewing screen, usually without you leaving the privacy of your examination room.

Getting the “Inside” Story

Ultrasound has been used for many years in monitoring pregnancy. It doesn’t use harmful (x-ray) radiation, and images are immediate. Using ultrasound, we can watch your muscles and joints on the screen in motion. If you say, “It hurts when I do this,” then we can use ultrasound to watch what’s happening inside at the same time.

Our practice is using today’s most advanced ultrasound equipment to:

  • See detailed images of your anatomy
  • Help diagnose injuries
  • Help detect abnormalities
  • Guide needle injections
  • Track healing progress

We’re in This Together

We believe that good medicine promotes teamwork between doctor and patient. With point-of-care ultrasound, we can watch what’s happening in your body together and can discuss the findings at the same time.
