Imaging reveals intrinsic muscle deterioration in neuropathic feet

By Jordana Bieze Foster Diabetic neuropathy is associated with increased levels of intrinsic foot muscle deterioration, which may contribute to foot deformity and ulceration, according to research presented in September at the annual meeting of the American Society of Biomechanics in Omaha, NE. Researchers from Washington University in St. Louis, MO, obtained magnetic resonance images of the feet of 23 patients with diabetic neuropathy and 12 age-matched controls.
