For multiple sclerosis (MS) phenotypes classification, the presence of "disease activity" can be defined by clinical relapses and/or by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) through gadolinium-enhancing (Gd+) lesions or new/enlarged T2 lesions. Recent MRI and pathology findings have demonstrated Gd deposition in the brain, suggesting to avoid Gd administration when dispensable. In this scenario, we aimed to evaluate the contribution of post-contrast MRIs to the definition of "active" MS phenotype.

Abstract

For multiple sclerosis (MS) phenotypes classification, the presence of "disease activity" can be defined by clinical relapses and/or by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) through gadolinium-enhancing (Gd+) lesions or new/enlarged T2 lesions. Recent MRI and pathology findings have demonstrated Gd deposition in the brain, suggesting to avoid Gd administration when dispensable. In this scenario, we aimed to evaluate the contribution of post-contrast MRIs to the definition of "active" MS phenotype.
