Diagnostic Ultrasound

At London Clinic, our top of the range facilities ensure we carry out a thorough examination to offer the most effective treatment for your diagnosis.

Our state-of-the-art diagnostic ultrasound equipment can be used to create an image of all the ligaments in your foot and ankle, plus the Achilles tendon, the plantar fascia, the posterior tibial tendon, and the peroneal tendons.


This technique is particularly useful when identifying lower limb related conditions, such as:

  • Achilles tendonitis

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Heel spurs

  • Torn tendons

  • Ligament injuries

  • Stress fractures

  • Morton’s Neuroma

  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome

  • Foot or ankle-based arthritis

  • Bursitis or capsulitis

Ultrasound Guided Injection 

Ultrasound-guided joint injections use high-frequency waves to accurately assess the joint and visualise the needle clearly, enabling a clear orientation of the target area.


This procedure is often recommended when other  treatments such as oral medication, joint manipulation and physical therapy, have been ineffective.

At the London Foot Clinic, we always aim to avoid unnecessary operations.

When we decide to proceed with any treatment, we ensure the least invasive procedure is undertaken.

  • MRI Scan
    Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses magnetic and radio waves to produce a detailed view of the ankle and foot, including soft tissues such as tendons, muscles, ligaments and cartilage. The scan can take anywhere between 45 minutes to an hour an involves going into a circular machine.
  • CT Scan
    This scan uses an X-ray machine that spins around the body to obtain detailed images known as cross sectional imagery. The sophisticated computer within the CT scanner is able to create a 3-Dimensional image of the body part being studied.

  • X-Rays
    X-rays give detailed information about the architecture of the joints in the foot and ankle. Many conditions can be detected through an X-ray. However, there are limitations in the ability to asssess the soft tissues such as tendons, nerves and cartilage.
  • Blood Tests
    Infection and inflammation cause some markers in the blood to be elevated. Testing for these markers can help in diagnosing some foot and ankle conditions.
