Answer

The Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) revised its MRI protocol and guidelines in 2015. The revised guidelines recommend using higher-resolution three-dimensional (3D) imaging over two-dimensional (2D) imaging whenever possible. More frequent scanning is recommended to monitor for progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy in patients taking natalizumab. [73]
