HealthTree University: MRD Testing (Part 1/3)

Understanding your Minimal Residual Disease status, and understanding what MRD testing is and what it means will be critical to the future of myeloma and your myeloma care. Below are some video excerpts from our HealthTree University curriculum to help you learn more about this important aspect of your disease.

15.01 What is MRD and why is it a useful measure? Is it important to get done?


15.02 How is MRD testing used as a prognostic tool?

 

15.03 How is MRD Testing done and how accurate are the results?

 

15.04 Who should consider MRD testing and when should it be done?

 

15.05 If you have measurable disease, is there still a reason to get MRD testing?
