Please answer re: imaging/pf

I had orthotripsy over 3 months ago and my foot pain has gotten progressively worse to where I can't even take a few steps. I am worried and would like the podiatrist to look at the tissue more carefully. Can this be done with an MRI or an ultrasound?
Thank you!

I'm just curious what orthotripsy is

'Orthotripsy is a non-invasive procedure for orthopedic applications. Orthotripsy utilizes the same technology as lithotripsy for kidney stones; very strong acoustic (sound) waves that produce a shock wave. Science has proven that shockwaves stimulate bone growth and promote the healing of tendinopathies'.
