Diagnosis and Monitoring

nyp.org/neuro home

The diagnosis of MS requires a thorough evaluation of a patient's symptoms through a physical examination (including assessment of the frequency of symptoms), a neurological exam, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), evoked potentials (which assess brain signaling), spinal tap, and blood tests to rule out other causes of the symptoms.

At NewYork-Presbyterian, an outstanding group of neuroradiologists uses advanced imaging technologies – including high-resolution MRI and optical coherence tomography (used by ophthalmologists to measure the retinal nerve fiber layer) – to monitor MS progression and guide treatment decisions.
