Description: The visible evidence of Leukamia usually follows an aggressive or a long standing abnormality. The radiologic expression of the disease is of an enlargement of the soft tissue mass of the bone marrow with loss of bone, particularly at the metaphyses where bone turnover is a little higher. The bone cortex amy also be eroded from below, giving a scalloped appearance. There may be other clues, such as splenic anlargement, visible on a radiograph of the pelvis. Lytic areas, chloromas, are rare, but are due to local masses of leukaemic cells.
