Abstract

Identification of bony abnormalities in diabetic foot syndrome depends not only on the clinical data, but also laboratory results and diagnostic imaging. Team work and communication between radiologist, diabetologist and other team members is crucial in the process of reaching proper diagnosis. The radiologist needs to be provided with all necessary clinical data that can influence assessment of images and the clinician needs to know, how to use the potential of diagnostic imaging and how to interpret the reports.
