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:
