Infection of the foot is common, especially in the diabetic population. Over the past decade, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become a ‘gold standard’ for evaluation of pedal infection. Therefore it is important for the radiologist to understand the MRI appearance of various manifestations of infection as well as conditions that may simulate infection, including neuropathic disease.
