Technology for your Toes
Most people don’t relate technology to the practice of
podiatry.However many tools greatly aid
in the advancement of our treatments. At Carolina Foot Specialists we are proud
to be able to offer the latest in treatment procedures, technological tools and
continuing education for our staff.
Being able to provide our patients with in house digital
x-rays and diagnostic ultrasounds have led to a much higher recovery rates and more
accurate treatment plans. Diagnostic ultrasounds of the foot and ankle
advance the prevention and treatment of wounds, detecting tendon and ligament
pathology, and detecting soft tissue lesions and foreign bodies.
Digital x-rays provide instantaneous images for the doctors to review. The data is transferred to a
computer where technicians can adjust the image for better quality, magnify the
area that needs to be studied, or even decide if the image needs to be retaken.
For those who are concerned about the risks of radiation
exposure, these digital pictures are actually better than traditional X-rays.
Also, having the ability to custom make custom orthotics for
individual issues and feet have greatly improved the health and well being of
many of our patients.
While a lot of our work stems from knowledge and clinical
diagnosis technology has not left podiatry behind. Come by and see us for happier feet and ankles today.
