Overview

MRI can provide some clues to diagnosis. CT is less sensitive and can provide false negative results.

MRI

  • Radiographic features:
    • MRI
      • Extensive gadolinium enhancement of white matter of the brain and spinal cord
      • Often extensive and relatively symmetric, often also involving the posterior fossa
      • Most lesions enhance with gadolinium, suggestive that all lesions are active, and that the disease is therefore monophasic.
