Marrow Metastasis

Histological examination is the gold standard for the diagnosis of marrow metastasis. MIBG is the most efficient test to estimate the distribution and severity of bone marrow involvement (Fig. 10.4; Osmana-gaoglu et al. 1993). Spotty marrow involvement can be missed by tissue biopsy. In addition, MIBG and MRI may show bone marrow involvement in areas not accessible to biopsy.

MRI may show more bone marrow lesions than MIBG (Corbett et al. 1991).
