A 46-year-old man presented to the emergency department with nausea, vomiting, and syncope after a bone marrow harvesting procedure. Initial laboratory results demonstrated a reduction in hemoglobin level from 15.7 g/dL to 12.2 g/dL, and contrast material–enhanced CT was ordered for further evaluation. Cinematic rendering (Figure) allows for full evaluation of the extent of bone marrow harvesting. It provides a clear three-dimensional representation of the anatomic distribution of sites of aspiration from the iliac bones (1,2). A small hematoma was present in the left lower abdomen. There was no need for treatment, and the patient was discharged the next morning in stable condition.
