En personas con diabetes, una infección en el pie frecuentemente conduce a amputación. La radiografía plana es el método tradicionalmente usado en la evaluación de las infeccionas óseas del pie, pero comparada con ella, la resonancia magnética es más sensible y específica. Se realiza aquí una evaluación de costo efectividad usando un modelo de Markov para comparar la radiografía convencional con la radiografía más resonancia magnética en pacientes con pie diabético y signos de infección. Se encontró un ICER por AVAD de $1.532.778 y de $1.741.311 sin y con descuento respectivamente. La resonancia magnética en la evaluación del pie diabético con signos de infección sería costo-efectiva para Colombia. Los resultados son robustos a pruebas de sensibilidad.
