Abstract

This review focuses on the clinical use of (18)F-FDG PET to evaluate multiple myeloma. (18)F-FDG PET is useful for diagnosis, staging of multiple myeloma and differential diagnosis of myeloma related disease such as monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance or plasmacytoma. For therapy response, (18)F-FDG PET may be effective after chemotherapy for multiple myeloma and radiotherapy for plasmacytoma.
