Abstract

Determining the frequency of longitudinally-extensive transverse myelitis (LETM: T2-lesion ≥3 vertebral segments) in multiple sclerosis (MS) is essential to assess its utility in differentiating from aquaporin-4-IgG (AQP4-IgG) positive neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) and ...read more

Multiple Sclerosis: Imaging

Magnetic resonance imaging has been used to diagnose and monitor the disease progression in multiple sclerosis. MRI has improved the management of MS patients and provided information on the level of atrophy in the brain and the severity of the disease. Discover the latest research on multiple sclerosis imaging here.

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis is a demyelinating autoimmune disease of the CNS, resulting in symptoms including optic neuritis and motor weakness. Discover the latest research on Multiple Sclerosis here.

Transverse Myelitis

Transverse myelitis is inflammation of the entire width of the spinal cord. It presents as motor, sensory, or autonomic dysfunction. The cause is not known, but it has been associated with various infections, immune disorders, and demyelination. Find the latest research on transverse myelitis here.

Cerebral Small Vessel Diseases

Cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD) includes several diseases affecting the small arteries, arterioles, venules, and capillaries of the brain, and refers to several pathological processes and etiologies. Discover the latest research on CSVD here.
