Abstract

The bone marrow is one of the largest organs in the body. There are two main types of bone marrow in human body: red and yellow bone marrow in the human body. Their proportions are determined by the overall distribution of fat and water, which ultimately determines the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) signal intensity.
