Thousand Oaks Podiatry Imaging
Digital X-Rays & Ultrasound Services
In order to find internal foot injuries or confirm a diagnosis, we sometimes need to use diagnostic imaging. Performance Foot and Ankle is outfitted with a full diagnostic facility equipped with state-of-the-art digital x-ray and ultrasound technology.
Your podiatrist may order an imaging test for many reasons, including:
- Assessing damage caused by arthritis
- Checking for signs of infection or other bone and tissue diseases
- Finding foreign objects (splinters, glass, etc.) lodged in the foot
- Checking for signs of fractures or other injuries
- Diagnosing the cause of foot pain
- To assist with image-guidance during a surgery
Digital imaging technology allows us to store all test results in the computer so that they can be easily accessed by any of your care professionals that need to review them. Images can be enlarged and manipulated to allow for more thorough examinations. Digital x-ray imaging also further limits radiation exposure for the patient.

Foot & Ankle Ultrasound
An ultrasound is a radiation-free imaging device that uses sound waves to create images of the body’s internal structures. Many people know of ultrasound for its use in pregnancy, but this technology is also used for diagnostic and surgical purposes.
Foot and ankle ultrasounds are often used in the diagnosis of:
Ultrasounds are safe, painless, and noninvasive. During the test, a gel will be applied to the examination area. A transducer wand is then rubbed over the gel. It releases soundwaves into the body which bounce back into the machine and are sent to a computer. The computer then interprets the received data as images that the radiologist can review.
