HealthTree University: Imaging in Myeloma (Part 1 of 3)
Posted Mar 24, 2021

Imaging is an important diagnostic tool in myeloma treatment and myeloma care. It is hard to know, as a patient, what imaging you should be getting, how often, and what each type of imaging can tell you about your myeloma.

Below are some video excerpts from our HealthTree University curriculum to help you learn more about this important aspect of your disease. We invite you to watch them all, visit HealthTree University, and create a HealthTree account. By creating a HealthTree account, in HealthTree University you can:

14.01 What is the role of imaging in myeloma care?

 

14.02 What imaging is used to monitor response?

We’d like to thank our faculty who donated their time in creating these videos, including:

  • Jens Hillengass, MD of Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center
