The article cites a study, conducted by A. Kapoor and colleagues, which focuses on the accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in diagnosing foot osteomyelitis. The study was published in an issue of the "Archives of Internal Medicine." The researchers used English-language studies to evaluate the diagnostic test performance of MRI in adult patients. They concluded that MRI had good diagnostic performance for foot osteomyelitis.
