Early diagnosis of osteomyelitis is helpful for a successful conservative treatment. The value of bone scanning combined with granulocytes labeled with hexamethylpropylene amine oxime (HMPAO) granulocyte-Tc99m (GN) radionuclide imaging (combined [RI]) with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for the diagnosis of osteomyelitis was assessed in 24 diabetic patients with foot ulcers. Evidence of osteomyelitis was based on the presence of at least one of the following criteria: (1) clinical bone… CONTINUE READING
