Magnetic resonance imaging in multiple sclerosis – new potentialities

  1. Fileva

Abstract.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurological disease and the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a key factor for its diagnosis. The aim of this paper is to review and systematize neuroradiology research results. The technology development and the higher radiology resources are a prerequisite for better analysis of the images of patients with multiple sclerosis. The combination of technological progress and changing multidisciplinary criteria for diagnosis requires optimization of the protocols used. The development of new, more informative sequences, and the expansion of the areas of interest are leading to better diagnostic. New opportunities for further research combined with clinical correlation are possible. Furthermore, artificial intelligence allows for more detailed evaluation of the MRI exams. The advanced magnetic resonance imaging diagnosis of patients with multiple sclerosis leads to earlier confirmation of the disease and better follow-up control. This could be crucial for the right individual approach to each patient.

Key words: MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI). MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS (MS). DIAGNOSIS
