Our NCITA coinvestigators, Professor Vicky Goh and Professor Gary Cook from King’s College London, have recently published a paper entitled ‘Comparison of the diagnostic performance and impact on management of 18F-FDG PET/CT and whole-body MRI in multiple myeloma‘ in the European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging.

They compared the use of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) against whole-body magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) on 46 patients with confirmed or suspected myeloma.

Their new paper reports that whole body MRI not only detected more myeloma-defining disease than PET/CT with 18F-FDG PET/CT but that it also allowed critical treatment to be initiated earlier.
