PURPOSE To characterize the uptake and elimination of ferumoxytol, an ultrasmall superparamagnetic iron oxide (USPIO) agent, in bone marrow of healthy human subjects. MATERIALS AND METHODS Four men and two postmenopausal women, aged 22 to 57 years, were prospectively included. Simultaneous fat, water, and T2* mapping of the proximal femora was performed at 1.5 Tesla using a three-dimensional multiple gradient echo sequence. After baseline imaging, ferumoxytol (Feraheme/Rienso) was injected… CONTINUE READING
