Article Title: MR imaging of bone marrow in patients with musculoskeletal tumors
Abstract: Knowledge of the appearances of normal bone marrow, metastases involving marrow, and therapy-related marrow changes shown by MR imaging is necessary in order to avoid misdiagnosis. This article reviews MR imaging techniques and the findings that allow distinction of normal yellow (fatty) marrow and red marrow from tumor in marrow, as well as the identification of marrow changes resulting from radiation therapy or treatment with marrow- stimulating drugs in patients with musculoskeletal tumors.
