Advanced Medical Testing to Diagnose Foot Problems

Diagnostic technology is a key component to diagnosing feet and ankle problems. When you come in to see us complaining of pain or other symptoms in your feet and ankles, the first step is a physical examination. However, this is not always sufficient to determine the exact cause of your symptoms. In order to achieve an accurate diagnosis, our Newtown foot doctor at Newtown Foot & Ankle Specialists may recommend a variety of testing to examine the tendons and joints of your feet.

There are many types of diagnostic procedures we may offer, depending on your symptoms:

  • Computed tomography (CT Scan): A CT scan is very similar to an X-Ray and can be used to give us accurate imaging of the joints and skeletal structure of your feet.
  • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging): An MRI is one of the most advanced forms of imaging that can give us a thorough picture of your ligaments, tissues, and bones.
  • X-Rays and radiography: These imaging methods are extremely safe and quick, giving us a more accurate picture of what is happening with your foot.
  • Bone scan: We use a safe type of dye, injecting it into the bloodstream so that we are able to evaluate the degree of inflammation, disease, or injury.
  • Stress radiography: By putting the joints of your feet under stress, we are able to check the sturdiness of your subtalar ligaments and ankles.
  • Ultrasound: An ultrasound is another non-invasive diagnostic tool that can be used to diagnose neuromas, sprains, and soft tissue masses.
