What other tests for multiple myeloma?

Blood/Urine/Imaging. Usually workup involves blood and urine tests (spep / upep - serum and urine protein electrophoresis). The preferred initial imaging study is the skeletal survey (x-ray of multiple sites of the body including skull, axial skeleton, and proximal long bones). Bony lesions are usually lytic.
Myeloma tests. There are many tests that are used to diagnose and stage multiple myeloma. These can include: cbc, chemistry panel, bone marrow biopsy, chromosome studies, plain xrays of the bones, 24 hour urine collection. Sometimes special imaging studies such as mri, ct or pet may be used.
