Multiple sclerosis (MS) presents with a variety of symptoms, and advanced imaging is one of the best ways doctors can verify a patient's diagnosis.
MS is a central nervous system disease in which the body attacks the protective covering, or myelin, of the brain, spinal cord or optic nerve, creating injured white matter, called demyelinating lesions. We offer advanced imaging at the Yale Clinical Neurosciences Imaging Center, a place where cutting-edge research overlaps with excellent patient care. There, imaging specialists can work in conjunction with neurologists outside the department.
