A comprehensive review of methods based on deep learning for diabetes-related foot ulcers #AI #DeepLearning @ALPSlimb #ActAgainstAmputation #C2SHiP

Terrific work from Zhang and coworkers Background: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a chronic disease with hyperglycemia. If not treated in time, it may lead to lower limb amputation. At the initial stage, the detection of diabetes-related foot ulcer (DFU) is very difficult. Deep learning has demonstrated state-of-the-art performance in various fields and has been used to...

Stratification of Microvascular Disease Severity in the Foot Using Spatial Frequency Domain Imaging

Work from our combined UofA and USC team with our colleagues at Modulim. Samuel Jett 1, Mallory R Thompson 2, Shubhangi Awasthi 2, David J Cuccia 1, Tze-Woei Tan 2, David G Armstrong 3, Amaan Mazhar 1, Craig C Weinkauf 2 Background: Microvascular disease (MVD) describes systemic changes in the small vessels (~100 um diameter) that impair tissue oxygenation and perfusion. MVD is a common but poorly monitored complication of diabetes.... Continue Reading →

SPECT-CT in the early diagnosis of Charcot arthropathy

More strong and practical work from our colleagues at King's... The Role of Bone Scintigraphy with SPECT/CT in the Characterization and Early Diagnosis of Stage 0 Charcot Neuroarthropathy Abstract: We describe the use of Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography/Computed Tomography (SPECT/CT) in the investigation and diagnosis of Charcot neuroarthropathy (CN) in patients with a hot...
