Whole body magnetic resonance imaging (WBMRI) is gaining ground for initial staging and monitoring treatment response of patients with multiple myeloma. However, most of the reported WBMRI protocols are based on anatomical MRI sequences such as pre-contrast T1 weighted, T2-weighted and short tau inversion recovery (STIR). In this study, the diagnostic performance of multiple anatomical and functional whole body MRI sequences for detection of myelomatous bone marrow involvement and its impact on Durie-Salmon PLUS staging is investigated.
