Short summary
Accurate diagnosis of bone infections underlying bed sores is essential. Microscopic examination of bone samples is the preferred method for diagnosis, but alternative modalities are commonly used in everyday practice. We conducted a systematic review comparing results of microscopic examination with those of alternative modalities. Our study did not find any other method to be a reliable alternative for the diagnosis of bone infections underlying bed sores compared to microscopic examination.
