Title: Multiscale Imaging of Multiple Myeloma Pathogenesis

Abstract: Multiple myeloma is an age-related, largely incurable hematological malignancy of clonal plasma cells. Myeloma pathogenesis starts with diffuse accumulation of malignant plasma cells in the bone marrow followed by focal lytic lesions and end organ damage. Radiological data are crucial for defining and managing multiple myeloma. This lecture will cover application of optical, nuclear and magnetic resonance modalities for imaging multiple myeloma.
