Assessing the correlation between radiographic classification and treatment required

The Beit CURE (BC) classification is a radiographic classification used in childhood chronic hematogenous osteomyelitis. This study included 145 cases with the aim of assessing the correlation between this classification and the type and extent of treatment required. The study shows that the BC classification can guide surgical strategy and help predict the length of inpatient treatment and the number and type of procedures required.
