Hi,
bone marrow involvement can be addressed by MRI still to diagnose a cancer your peripheral blood count to be mentioned in detail. If you have very high leucocyte count with high peripheral blasts count then tissue diagnosis of bone marrow to be done with flowcytometric analysis. Then only hematological cancer can be diagnosed Anyway many hematological cancers are completely curable even in advanced stage. Consult with your doctors regarding your diagnosis. Take care.
