Brief Answer:
Latest report is also in our favour.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for writing again

I am aware of your husband's case.
Latest report is also in our favour.
This test also excludes multiple myeloma.

It is good that there is no monoclonal gammopathy.Monoclonal gammopathies occurs due to overproduction of a single abnormal clone of a plasma cell or B lymphocyte.Plasma cells proliferation is generally found in multiple myeloma.

So,you don't worry at all.He is fine.

Get well soon.
Hope I have answered your question.
Further queries are most welcome.

Brief Answer:
Total dose delivered to your husband is far below XXXXXXX allowable safe dose.

Detailed Answer:
Hello

You don't worry about radiation exposure.Total dose delivered to your husband is far below the maximum allowable safe dose.

Total dose delivered due to radiological examinations is approx 18.0 mSV. This amount of radiation is equivalent to 4.5 years of natural radiation that every one of us get from environment.

CT thorax may deliver 8 mSV.
CT abdomen may deliver 10 mSV(with contrast).
Risk level is low due to these procedures.He is almost safe.

Get well soon.
Hope I have answered your question.
Further queries are most welcome.
