Can a CT scan detect multiple myeloma?

A CT scan can capture detailed images of the body’s internal structures, including bones. In the context of multiple myeloma, a CT scan might show bone lesions, fractures or other abnormalities associated with the disease. However, while these findings can be suggestive of multiple myeloma, they aren’t definitive. A bone marrow biopsy, often supplemented with blood tests, is usually needed to make a conclusive diagnosis. CT scans can be invaluable in staging the disease, guiding biopsies and monitoring the disease’s progression or response to treatment.
