Foot/Ankle Ultrasound

Ultrasound has many uses in the foot and ankle.  For sports medicine specialists, ultrasound is used on the field during sporting events as a diagnostic tool in lieu of x-rays or MRI's.  For the foot and ankle, we can quickly scan for fractures or sprains to safely return athletes to play faster since most of the bones are superficial and easily injured in sports.
