Brain Atrophy & Multiple Sclerosis

February 15th, Medical News Today…

In patients with recently diagnosed multiple sclerosis, the extent of accumulated brain tissue loss and overall lesion load as determined by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may predict the rate of cerebral atrophy over the following two years, according to a report in the Archives of Neurology, one of the JAMA/Archives journals.

It has been almost two years since I was diagnosed…but I will not qualify for an MRI scan until end of 2008… I recently asked my doctor to do an MRI scan but she gave me this reply. Would have liked it now…instead of next year…:p
