What is diagnostic imaging?

Diagnostic imaging is a group of procedures that use advanced technologies to view your bones, joints, soft tissues, and internal organs. The team at NYC Footcare PC uses imaging to identify underlying health problems and help guide treatment.

What types of foot problems can imaging help diagnose?

At NYC Footcare PC, the team uses imaging to help diagnose various foot problems, including:

  • Bunions
  • Foot and ankle fractures
  • Heel pain
  • Bone spurs
  • Nerve pain
  • Tendonitis
  • Dislocated joints

You might also benefit from imaging if you experience a work- or sports-related injury.

What are the types of diagnostic imaging?

At NYC Footcare PC, the team offers several types of diagnostic imaging, including:

In-office MRI

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a powerful magnet to capture images of your body. The team at NYC Footcare PC uses MRIs to identify various conditions that affect the feet and ankles, including tendon injuries, ligament injuries, fractures, and infection.

In-office CT scan

A CT scan is a type of X-ray that provides detailed images of your bones and joints from various angles. Your provider might recommend a CT scan if they suspect you have arthritis, a fracture, or a bone spur.

In-office X-rays

X-rays use low doses of ionizing radiation to capture photos of your bones and joints. The team at NYC Footcare PC regularly uses X-rays to diagnose fractures, dislocated joints, and bunions.

In-office ultrasound

If you suffer from chronic heel pain, your provider might recommend an ultrasound. An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to take images of the soft tissues inside your feet. An ultrasound can diagnose plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, and damage to your ligaments.

What type of imaging will most benefit me?

The type of imaging that will most benefit you depends on several factors, including the symptoms you’re experiencing, their location, and their severity. After reviewing your medical records and conducting a complete physical, the team at NYC Footcare PC can make recommendations that align with your needs.

When will I receive the results of my imaging test?

The length of time that it takes to receive your imaging test results depends on the procedure performed. If you get an ultrasound, your provider makes a diagnosis in real-time. If you get X-rays, an MRI, or a CT scan, it takes 24-48 hours.

Once your provider reviews the results, they give you a call, explain your diagnosis, and discuss the next steps for treatment.
