Ultrasound is sound that has a frequency higher than the range of human hearing which is 20,000 cycles/second or 20 kHz. Ultrasound simply describes sound that has a pitch too high for us to hear.

Images viewed with diagnostic ultrasound appear in ranging shades from bright Lite-hyperechoic indicating a boney structure to soft tissue structures appearing Grey-hyperechoic or even black-anechoic. Our podiatric physicians commonly utilize this technology to evaluate many podiatric concerns.

  • Achilles Tendon injuries
  • Retrocalcaneal bursitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Plantar fibromas
  • Heel spur pain
  • Tendon pain and injuries around the ankle
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
