Figure 4:(a) Plane radiograph of the left ankle with enlarged inserts showing the ulceration in the soft tissue over the lateral malleolus. No of osteomyelitis of the lateral malleolus was reported. (b) Time-activity curve after drawing region of interest in different segments of a technetium-99m-methylene diphosphonate flow image for comparison and to confirm generalized increased flow. (c) Technetium-99m-methylene diphosphonate pool and delayed images indicating generalized increased retention of radiotracer in the pool images (upper row) and focal retention of radiotracer in the region of the left lateral malleolus on delayed images (lower row). (d) Time-activity curve after drawing region of interest in different segments of a gallium-67 flow image for comparison and to confirm generalized increased flow. (e) Gallium-67 pool and 48 h delayed images indicating focal retention of radiotracer in the region of the left lateral malleolus
