The IMWG present recommendations on imaging both in clinical practice and in the trial setting to help standardise the best imaging methods to use as myeloma patients progress through different disease stages.
Guidelines for Acquisition, Interpretation, and Reporting of Whole-Body MRI in Myeloma: Myeloma Response Assessment and Diagnosis System (MY-RADS)
As whole-body MRI is listed in NICE guidance as the recommended first line imaging in patients with suspected myeloma, this paper outlines a clinical protocol: the Myeloma Response Assessment and Diagnosis System (MY-RADS), for its use and interpretation.
Recommendations for acquisition, interpretation and reporting of whole body low dose CT in patients with multiple myeloma and other plasma cell disorders: a report of the IMWG Bone Working Group
The Bone group of the IMWG present recommendations for the use of whole body low-dose CT in patients with myeloma and other plasma cell disorders, as an imaging method for assessing bone disease in these patients.
This paper, produced by an expert panel of the International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG) reviews the assessment of disease response and endpoints for clinical trials, and provides updated response categories of minimal residual disease negativity.
These updated guidelines, produced by the British Society of Haematology and Myeloma UK summarise a national consensus for the use of imaging in the diagnosis and management of myeloma patients.Download
