Figure 4: Magnetic resonant imaging appearance of multiple myeloma. Sagittal unenhanced T1-weighted (a), Short Tau Inversion Recovery (STIR) (b) and contrast material-enhanced T1-weighted (c) magnetic resonance images demonstrate areas of bone marrow with low signal intensity in a, intermediate signal intensity in b, and contrast enhancement in c (arrows). This signal intensity pattern is characteristic of active multiple myeloma lesions. The areas with high signal intensity in a, low signal intensity in b, and only mild or no enhancement in c (arrowheads) represent fat that has replaced the marrow as a result of radiation therapy
