C) A sinus tract extends down 31 Diagnosis of osteomyelitis by MRI is made by identifying abnormal marrow in the bone that is typically signified by low signal replacing the marrow on T1 weighted scans and high signal in the same location of T2 weighted scans. Enhancement of the bone on fat suppressed T1 weighted images can also be useful in making the diagnosis. Marrow signal changes are always present in osteomyelitis but can also be present due to other disease processes such as reactive edema secondary to inflammation, trauma, stress reaction, or tumor.

Other factors must be taken into consideration as serologic markers alone cannot diagnose osteomyelitis. With that being said, no clinical picture, or clinical examination can solely diagnose osteomyelitis either. There is no single test that exists that can absolutely diagnose osteomyelitis. Put simply, a single “reference standard” might not exist for the diagnosis of lower extremity osteomyelitis [83]. The clinician needs to rely on combination of factors including a thorough clinical exam, past medical history, vital signs, serologic and other laboratory markers (only when appropriate and deemed necessary), as well as imaging tools to aid in the diagnosis of this complex disease.
