 +====== Bone Marrow ======
 +
 +The soft, fatty, vascular tissue that fills most bone cavities and is the source of [[red blood cells]] and many [[white blood cells]]. The spongy material that fills the cavities of the bones and is the substance in which many of the [[blood]] elements are produced. In order to determine the condition of the marrow, a doctor may take a small sample from one of the bones in the chest, hip, spine, or leg. Such examinations are performed with the help of local anesthesia.
