The objective of this study is to compare the most recent systems for the staging of multiple myeloma (MM), the Durie-Salmon PLUS system and the International Staging System, according to patients' survival rates and response to therapy. Another objective is to verify whether patterns of bone marrow alteration on MRI (i.e., focal, diffuse, or variegated patterns) can provide prognostic information for patients with MM.

Abstract

The objective of this study is to compare the most recent systems for the staging of multiple myeloma (MM), the Durie-Salmon PLUS system and the International Staging System, according to patients' survival rates and response to therapy. Another objective is to verify whether patterns of bone marrow alteration on MRI (i.e., focal, diffuse, or variegated patterns) can provide prognostic information for patients with MM.
