Imaging Patterns in Myelopathies and Myelitis

August 5, 2019

The TMA is joined by Dr. Eoin Flanagan, Associate Professor of Neurology and Consultant in the departments of Neurology and Laboratory Medicine and Pathology at the Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN). Dr. Flanagan defines different imaging techniques and discusses how imaging is used to diagnose rare neuroimmune disorders. He discusses what imaging results can tell us about prognosis and the likelihood of developing multiple sclerosis. He provides guidelines for how often to get new MRIs after an inflammatory event, and what new imaging can tell you about your condition. Finally, research and the future of imaging techniques is discussed.
