|- Brief summary||Bone disease, defined as osteolytic lesions and osteoporosis, is common in patients with symptomatic/stage III Multiple Myeloma (MM), with up to 90% of patients developing bone lesions and up to 60% of patients experiencing a pathologic fracture in the course of the disease.|
The sensitivity of conventional WBXR analysis is low, given that at least 30% of trabecular bone substance must be lost in order to give rise to visible lytic lesions. Recently, other imaging modalities including WB-MRI and FDG-PET-CT have become available, which in general are more sensitive than WBXR. Although the negative prognostic impact of the presence of bone lesions as detected by WBXR is clear and has been validated in differently treated patient populations, there is less information on the prognostic value of baseline MRI and even more sparse data concerning the other imaging techniques. Therefore it is necessary to investigate the prognostic impact of these newer imaging techniques before replacing WBXR.
Currently, bone Currently remission status is being performed according to the IMWG criteria, measuring m-protein levels and clonal plasmacell counts. Bone disease as indicated by WBXR is only being monitored to exclude progression, as generally no responses can be observed. Based on earlier research it is suggested that normalization of bone disease detected by newer imaging was prognostic importance. It is not clear which imaging technique is most suitable for respons evaluation.
Therefore every patient will undergo WB-MRI and FDG-PET-CT before start of treatment and after the third and ninth chemotherapy cours this will be repeated in half of the included patients.
