During COMy 2020, Elena Zamagni, University of Bologna, Bologna, IT, spoke to the Multiple Myeloma (MM) Hub. We asked: What is the gold standard for imaging in MM and how can this be implemented globally?
Elena Zamagni outlined the range of imaging techniques currently employed to stage, diagnose, and guide the treatment of MM. Such technologies are used differentially throughout disease progression, from smoldering MM to overt disease. Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) was highlighted as the gold standard in MM, but alternative techniques, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), were also discussed.
