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

Pattern Mean ± SD Range P
Persistent red marrow with preserved signal loss on OP (> 20%) 189 ± 94 56–322 < 0.001
Diffuse hypointense pattern with < 20% signal loss on OP (OP < IP) 1054 ± 499 509–1765
Diffuse hypointense pattern with no signal loss on OP (OP > IP) 1536 ± 940 568–3120
Signal void pattern 3521 ± 408 3095–3910
