Personal experience of technetium 99m sulfur colloid in the scintiscanning of bone marrow is reported. The method offers technical advantages over other methods and superior protection, while its only limitation is that it does not permit a dynamic study of hematopoiesis. Four pathologic scans typical of four groups of diseases may be distinguished. Further, metastatic bone marrow localisations can be diagnosed much earlier and more precisely than by radiography.
