Medical Miracles - Diagnostic Ultrasound
Most of us know about ultrasound from viewing a pregnant woman's belly. While the machine used by our doctors is the same the probe that touches the foot and ankle has been modified for musculoskeletal evaluation.
Our doctors are now able to painlessly view bones, tendons, ligaments and related structure all in real time imaging. In other words with diagnostic ultrasound we can watch the bones tendons and ligaments as they move finding problems that often hurt you and are only visible while they are in motion. This is a revolutionary change from how we examined our patients just a few years ago. It is a tool that has allowed us to do an even better job then before. We are among the first in our region to utilize this advanced technology in our practice.
