Discriminating neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder and multiple sclerosis based on MRI imaging

Takeaway

  • Successful criteria were determined to differentiate neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) and multiple sclerosis (MS) based on MRI imaging.

Why this matters

  • The inability to distinguish between NMOSD and the relapsing forms of MS remains a problem, this study aims to establish a criteria to discriminate these two diseases based on MRI lesion imaging.
