Differentiating Multiple Sclerosis Mimics on MRI

Neurology Advisor—September 7, 2016

Neurology Advisor writer, Tori Rodriguez, reports on the importance of accurately diagnosing multiple sclerosis (MS), especially since other conditions often mimic MS on MRI imaging.

According to Dale J. Lange, MD, neurologist-in-chief and Darius P. Melisaratos, MD, radiologist at Hospital for Special Surgery, "MRI imaging of the brain provides the objective support needed to endorse the diagnosis." They further explain, "The most important point to take from this series is that many images can be compatible with MS. However, an accurate diagnosis can be made only after thorough review of images obtained from the entire brain and by understanding the clinical context."
