Ultrasound imaging for ankle injuries.
Non-invasive ankle ultrasound.
Particularly effective in identifying issues associated with the tendons and tendon sheaths such as tendinosis, tenosynovitis, tears and subluxation, ultrasound can also be used to diagnose other foot and ankle conditions including ligament sprains, joint effusions, ganglion cysts, bursitis and nerve conditions such as tarsal tunnel syndrome or other nerve conditions such as Morton’s neuroma as well as bursitis.
Fast, affordable and radiation-free.
While Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is often considered the gold standard in ankle imaging, ultrasound is generally a faster and more affordable alternative method that can also yield high-quality diagnostic images.
Utilising high frequency sound waves, ankle ultrasound can be safely performed without any risk of exposure to radiation and is an entirely safe medical imaging method.
Rapid diagnosis of sporting ankle injury.
Ankle injuries can vary in severity from a mild sprain to a partial or complete ligament tear. An ankle ultrasound can quickly identify the type of injury sustained and determine the severity of the injury, allowing your doctor to formulate an appropriate treatment plan.
Doppler ultrasound imaging can also help to distinguish small intrasubstance tendon tears from blood vessels and accurately determine the extent of tendon sheath as well as joint inflammation.
We welcome referring doctors to discuss the individual ankle imaging needs of their patients with our radiologists.
