We present a method for labeling bone marrow haematopoietic progenitor cells with iron particles. Labeling was assessed by magnetic resonance imaging and electron microscopy. Labeling with iron particles could allow the following by imaging techniques of haematopoietic cells in physiologic and pathologic conditions such as the engraftment of haematopoietic progenitor cells or the migration of myelomonocytic cells in inflammatory diseases.
