Multiple Sclerosis Diagnosis

What cases require a myelogram test for the diagnosis of MS?

A Answers (1)

  • ALouis Rosner, Neurology, answered
    In the past, when signs or symptoms were confined to the spinal cord and no dramatic remission occurred, it was frequently necessary to do a myelogram to rule out any compression of the spinal cord by, for example, a disc or tumor. In this test, dye is injected into the spinal fluid and an X-ray is taken. With the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), this test is needed much less often.
