From: A rabbit osteomyelitis model for the longitudinal assessment of early post-operative implant infections

Osteomyelitis grade Morphological changes
0 No radiologic abnormalities
1 Mild periosteal reaction
Mild osteolysis directly around the implant
2 Periosteal reaction
Evident osteolysis around the implant
3 Periosteal reaction with subperiostal calcification
More extensive metaphyseal osteolysis
4 Cortical thickening
  Osteolysis extending into diaphysis
