Answer

The following organizations have issued guidelines for the use of imaging in the diagnosis of MS: [73, 139, 140, 141]

  • Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC)
  • MAGNIMS (Magnetic Resonance Imaging in MS) Network
  • European Academy of Neurology (EAN)

Although MRI alone cannot be used to diagnose MS, all four guidelines (MAGNIMS has two) concur that it is the imaging procedure of choice for confirming MS and monitoring disease progression in the brain and spinal cord.
