AIMS Our objective was to assess the qualitative soft tissue changes which occur in the diabetic neuropathic foot, which may predispose to ulceration, using a specific magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast sequence, magnetization transfer (MT) which produces contrast based on exchange between water bound to macromolecules (e.g. collagen) and free water (e.g. extracellular fluid). METHODS The first metatarsal head of 19 diabetic neuropathic subjects and 11 diabetic non-neuropathic controls… CONTINUE READING
