One of the most important elements of podiatric care is diagnostics. Podiatric radiology is a tool utilized in care as a diagnostic practice to rule out pathology (such as a possible fracture). Podiatrists rely on a variety of diagnostic techniques in order to fully understand what is occurring in the patient’s musculoskeletal system, and how a given treatment intervention could bring about positive results in each patient.
X-rays allow for podiatrists to see exactly what is going on inside the foot & ankle so they can determine an exact diagnosis and follow up with the best procedure to help heal and repair your injury. Here at Coastal Podiatry, we are proud to offer this advanced technology to our valued patients.
