The aim of this prospective study is to evaluate the combined use of fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (18 F-FDG) and fluorine-18 sodium fluoride (18 F-NaF) PET/CT in the skeletal assessment of patients with multiple myeloma (MM) and to compare the efficacy of these two PET tracers regarding detection of myeloma-indicative osseous lesions. The study includes 60 patients with multiple myeloma (MM) diagnosed according to standard criteria. All patients underwent dynamic (dPET/CT) scanning of the… CONTINUE READING
