The Charcot Foot in Diabetes Biomechanics, Pathophysiology, and MRI-Findings
This book provides a comprehensive update on clinical, radiological, physiological, and biomechanical aspects of the diabetic foot. After description of the biomechanics of the normal foot and the biomechanical derangements of the diabetic foot, pathophysiological aspects are addressed. The various diabetic foot pathologies are then considered in a series of individual chapters, where the focus is especially on the role of MRI in lesion characterization and differential diagnosis from inflammatory disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and gout. Indications and contraindications for contrast-enhanced MR examinations are clearly set out, and emerging MR techniques are considered. In addition, the technique and indications for radiography and other imaging modalities are explained. Discussion of epidemiology, morbidity, disability, and financial impacts completes the coverage. The book will be of high value for a wide variety of health specialists, including radiologists, radiology residents, orthopaedic foot surgeons, family physicians, podiatrists, and physical therapists.
