Our podiatric surgery clinic is equipped with a digital x-ray system. This type of diagnostic examination is used to examine the bones and joints of the foot and ankle for fractures, dislocations, arthritis, and deformities. Digital x-ray technology helps reduce the doses of radioactive waves used while producing quality images that can be viewed on a computer.
MSK ultrasound is a medical imaging technique that uses sound waves to produce diagnostic images. An ultrasound examination allows us to diagnose certain foot conditions, including tenosynovitis, tendon and ligament sprains or tears, Morton’s neuroma, and cysts. It also provides a highly accurate visual on a monitor to ensure that cortisone injections are properly administered to the affected areas. To use ultrasound equipment, podiatrists must hold a permit from the Ordre des podiatres du Québec certifying that they have received the appropriate training. Our podiatrists have been authorized to use ultrasound for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes and to draft ultrasound reports by the Ordre des podiatres du Québec.
Fluoroscopy is a type of radiology that provides real-time, moving images of the skeletal structure. Our mini c-arm fluoroscopic imaging system is designed to give us a live image of your foot during your procedure.
