OBJECTIVE Detection of the residual bone marrow (BM) involvement is essential in treatment of patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). Bilateral iliac crest BM biopsies appear to have low sensitivity for BM infiltration, while magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) presents more global view of BM. This study was conducted to determine the advantage of femoral marrow MRI as a non-invasive technique over bilateral iliac crest BM biopsies in detecting BM infiltration before treatment and residual… CONTINUE READING
