Quantitative MRI analysis now shows correlation to functional ability in MS patients

The research was done against the background that previous studies have shown no correlation in the patients functional ability and the number of lesions measured by MRI. However, in this study researchers led by Dr. Oh of Johns Hopkins University and his colleagues have shown that Spinal cord lesions imaged with quantitative MRI-based technologies correlates with clinical disability of multiple sclerosis (MS) patients.

The study was funded by the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke and reported in  Feb. 5 issue of Neurology
