Title:
The role of 99mTc-antigranulocyte SPECT/CT in community-acquired diabetic foot osteomyelitis: A clinical experience

Abstract:
Background: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the actual gold standard for the radiological diagnosis of diabetic foot osteomyelitis (DFO).

Materials and Methods: However, MRI is not always available, and many patients have contraindications. We evaluate the clinical value of 99mTc-antigranulocyte SPECT/CT (AGS) in eight DFO patients who underwent MRI before.

Results: The goal was to have a better clinical view on the extent of bone infection and to ameliorate the surgical approach for DFO. However, this additional scintigraphy did not change anything in the clinical approach. Conclusion: We share our experience with AGO for the clinical management of complex DFO cases.
