(a) left foot, lesions stage IIIb and IVb at the mid tarsal joint and one lesion stage IIIa at the center of the sole. (b) left foot, two viable lesions at the base between the first and second toe. (c) left foot, rhomboid hyperthermic area at base between the first and second toe, median temperature 28.1°C( iron transformation). (d) left foot, hyperthermic areas around the lesions (iron transformation). (e) left foot, hyperthermic area at the base between the first and second toe immediately after extraction, median temperature 29.2°C (iron transformation). (f) left foot, hyperthermic area at the base between the first and the second toe immediately after extraction four days after extraction, median temperature 24.3 °C (iron transformation). (g) left foot, overview with isotherm areas > 30.5 °C marked in green (inverted grey transformation). (h) left foot, overview with isotherm areas >31.2 °C marked in green (inverted grey transformation). (i) left foot four day after extraction, isotherm areas >30.5°C are no longer present (inverted grey transformation)
