    • Overview

      The diagnosis and differential diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS), as well evaluating prognostic factors at onset and along the disease course, increasingly rely on MRI findings. The MRI exam, along with the clinical evaluation, are the key measures for estimating treatment response and safety. Moreover, estimating prognosis may benefit from quantitative analysis of lesion load and brain volumes. Unconventional techniques are mostly used in clinical research and provide unique information about micro structural damage and brain dynamics. Therefore, there is a need to constantly update knowledge in the MRI field. This practice teaching course will give an overview of applying MRI techniques and offer practical training on MRI quantitative analysis through an innovative ‘hands on’ approach. Attendees will play with software that works as an analytical videogame where users submit MRI scans from which they can extract important numerical data concerning lesions, white matter and more.
