Although routine bone marrow evaluation is based on aspirates and bone marrow biopsies, new diagnostic tools are required to improve diagnostic accuracy. Visual and quantitative assessment of the bone marrow by magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is useful for the detection of occult lymphomatous marrow involvement. MRI is also suitable for the evaluation of disease extent in the bone… CONTINUE READING
