Abstract

The composition of normal human bone marrow lends itself well to analysis by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It contains a mixture of fat cells interspersed with hematopoietic cells contained within the spaces between the bony trabeculae. The relative fractions of fat and hematopoietic cells in the adult vary from site to site; the vertebrae contain approximately 50% of each, while the femoral epiphyses, greater trochanter and distal shaft contain primarily fat.
