Abstract

Among all imaging modalities, magnetic resonance imaging provides the most useful information about the accurate staging of solitary bone plasmacytoma, the prediction of progression of asymptomatic multiple myeloma and the prognosis of symptomatic multiple myeloma. Furthermore, magnetic resonance imaging contributes to the differential diagnosis of compression fractures in patients with myeloma and can be used for assessment of response to treatment.
