Conference paper


Anemia induces several bone modifications, hyperplasia of hematopoetic tissue, increased bone marrow blood flow, release of immature cells from bone marrow, and resorption of bone [1–5]. The aim of study was to investigate whether the extension of the bone marrow cellular mass was the causal factor in inducing the increase in bone blood flow.
