Abstract: The value of short inversion time inversion recovery (STIR) imaging in differentiating patients with aplastic anemia (AA) from those with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) was investigated. Thirty-nine patients with pancytopenia were diagnosed hematologically as having AA or MDS. These patients and 95 volunteers without hematologic disorders were then examined with STIR imaging. Hyperintense posterior pelvis was present in 25 of the 29 patients with MDS, including 17 of the 19 patients with refractory anemia. In contrast, high intensity of the posterior pelvis was absent in 8 of the AA 10 patients. High intensity of the femoral elements was present in 6 of the 8 patients with severe MDS and 3 of the 19 patients with refractory anemia. High intensity in the femoral elements was absent in all 10 AA patients. STIR imaging was useful in differentiating patients with AA from those with MDS.
