We place joints under stress and use radiography to check the integrity of your ankle and subtalar ligaments.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
MRIs give us detailed information about the tissues, ligaments and bone structures of your feet and ankles helping us arrive at an accurate and thorough diagnosis.
Computed Tomography Scanning (CT Scan)
CT scans give podiatrists the best view of the foot’s skeletal structure and joints. CT scans work similarly to X-Rays.
A special dye is injected into the bloodstream and pools at the site of injury or inflammation. We use an imaging tool to see the dye and evaluate blood supply to determine the extent of injury or disease.
The same technique used to see unborn babies; ultrasound is non-invasive way for us to examine ganglions, bursas, joints, tendons, motions, neuromas, edema and swelling. It may also be used to accurately guide injections to the joints which need them.
Video Gait Analysis
Patients run and walk on a treadmill outfitted with video cameras so your podiatrist can view the results, frame-by-frame in slow-motion. We’ll check how your feet, legs and ankles are working and discover where problems are or where they may occur in the future.
