Abstract

The bone marrow is a complex organ that contains fat and nonfat cells, the proportions of which vary greatly with age and in the different bones of the skeleton. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging provides information on the composition of the medullary cavity of any given bone and on the distribution of red and yellow marrow in the skeleton. This article deals with the wide spectrum of appearances of the normal bone marrow at MR imaging.
