Almost all diabetic foot infections originate from a foot ulcer. Decreased pain perception and structural deformities such as previous partial foot amputation, Charcot joints, and toe deformity in combination with chronic ischemia lead to a propensity for skin breakdown and subsequent infection. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is increasingly performed to evaluate for potential bone infection, but diagnosis of osteomyelitis can be complicated because signal changes from acute Charcot… CONTINUE READING
