  • The appearance in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the bones depends, to a large ex- tent, on the unmineralized content of the bone cav- ities. Because yellow marrow contains a large num- ber of fat protons and red marrow a significant num- ber of water protons, MRI offers the opportunity to map the distribution of red and yellow marrow. In addition, red marrow MR appearance varies accord- ing to the relative proportion of fat and nonfat cells. Variations in the composition of red marrow and… CONTINUE READING
