From: The added value of chemical shift imaging in evaluation of bone marrow changes in sickle cell disease

  Pattern Number Percent
Iron loading Overload (Hemosiderosis) Diffuse hypointense pattern with no signal loss on OP 19 ~ 45.23%
Diffuse hypointense pattern with < 20% signal loss on OP 6 ~ 14.3%
Signal void pattern 3 ~ 7.14%
No overload Persistent red marrow with preserved signal loss on OP (> 20%) 14 ~ 33.33%
Volume Diffuse marrow expansion 2 ~ 4.8%
