Diagnostic ultrasound

A technology increasingly present in podiatry, ultrasound imaging is used to visualize structures directly under the skin, like tendons, bones, blood vessels or the plantar fascia.

Unlike an x-ray, this allows us to see the soft tissues, not just the bones. ​ It is also used to make more precise cortisone infiltrations and make more complete diagnoses of foot pain. Its use requires additional training that the clinic's podiatrists have completed to better serve you. It is frequently used in cases of: ​

  • Heel pain

  • Morton's neuroma

  • Stress fracture

  • Forefoot pain ​


This technique is painless and allows us to see “under the skin” dynamically, that is, observe movement in real time rather than in a static image.
