This form may be used to refer all Myeloma patients but may not be looked at over the weekend or out of hours.
Therefore patients with Abnormal Neurology should still be referred using this form but *must also be discussed with the on-call spinal surgical team.
Patients with Normal Neurology should be referred using this form and do not need to be discussed.
All cases will be triaged and seen as soon as possible in line with current cancer guidelines.
Where necessary a member of our myeloma team will contact you for advice.
All myeloma patients will need comprehensive spinal imaging.
Prior to referral, please arrange:
- MRI whole spine with Sagittal T1 + STIR sequences
- CT of any abnormal bony anatomy with sagittal and coronal reconstructions
Please send all imaging via IEP to the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital.
We are unable to provide an opinion without appropriate imaging.
