Diffuse bone marrow infiltration on MRI (mnemonic)

Last revised by Henry Knipe on 10 Jun 2022

A mnemonic to remember differentials causing diffuse bone marrow infiltration on MRI. Bone marrow infiltration is best evaluated on T1 sequences and may be focal or diffuse. Focal infiltration is seen in metastases and lymphoma. The diffuse pattern is seen more commonly in multiple myeloma, mastocytosis, myelofibrosis, and leukemia.
