    The initial probe to bone data was based on a population group that had extremely high likelihood of having osteomyelitis - it was not meant to suggest that if you can probe to bone it is osteomyelitis. However, if you think that there is a high index suspicion that osteomyelitis is present and you can probe to bone, then there is a greater chance that you are right. Higher index of suspician = longer duration of wound, previous history of infection etc...

    The interpretation of the initial study results has changed over the years - deviating from the original authors conclusion, simply because other authors citing this work have interpreted the results in different ways - I know that a lot of practitioners think that osteomyelitis is present as soon as bone is exposed, when it may not be the case. It makes you think about checking where people got their initial information from to make sure their interpretation is appropriate.....just a thought....
