An ultrasound is a good tool used by doctors to diagnois a host of problems and if your doctor has recommended an ultrasound procedure, you should consider the professional's advise.

It could determine whether there is a broken bone inside the foot or dislocated tendon. It could identify whether there is a foreign object or cyst causing spelling.

yes ultrasound can very well determine the cause of foot swelling because ultrasound detects everything minutely. So go for a ultrasound and everything can be known. Dont worry that you have to pay because it is very important to find the cause of disease. Go for it as foot swelling could be serious.

It depends upon the cause of the swelling. For some things (particularly blockages), an ultrasound can pinpoint the cause of the swelling. If nothing else, it will rule out these problems as a possibility. If you doctor recommends having it done, you should do so.
