The aim of this study was to describe the role of positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) with fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) in the detection of skeletal and visceral involvement in patients with MM (multiple myeloma) at the initial diagnosis and to evaluate the relation between maximum standardized uptake values (SUVmax) of FDG with bone marrow cellularity and plasma cell ratios.
