Whole body MRI with diffusion weighted imaging is a useful imaging tool
- staging and diagnosis
- therapy monitoring All patients will be scanned before and during treatment. The findings on diffusion weighted imaging will be correlated to the golden standard (computer tomography and MRI (T1 and STIR)).

||Whole Body MRI Imaging in Multiple Myeloma at 3 Tesla MRI: What is the Added Value of Diffusion Weighted Imaging in Diagnosis and Follow-up
Primary Outcome Measures:
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Therapy assessment [ Time Frame: 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Whole body MRI with Diffusion weighted imaging is useful for treatment monitoring in multiple myeloma patients during and after therapy.
Measurement of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) and comparison of ADC before, during and after therapy. Correlation of ADC with clinical findings and standard MRI findings.
