Indexing severity of diabetic foot infection with 99mTc-white blood cell single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography hybrid imaging
from Diabetes Care
Management of diabetic foot infection (DFI) has been hampered by limited means of accurately classifying disease severity. New hybrid nuclear/computed tomography (CT) imaging techniques elucidate a combination of wound infection parameters not previously evaluated as outcome prognosticators. Our aim is to determine if a novel standardized hybrid image-based scoring system, Composite Severity Index (CSI), has prognostic value in DFI.
