TI  - Guidelines for the use of magnetic resonance imaging in diagnosing and monitoring
      the treatment of multiple sclerosis: recommendations of the Swedish Multiple
      Sclerosis Association and the Swedish Neuroradiological Society.

AB  - Multiple sclerosis (MS) is associated with inflammatory lesions in the brain and 
      spinal cord. The detection of such inflammatory lesions using magnetic resonance 
      imaging (MRI) is important in the consideration of the diagnosis and differential
      diagnoses of MS, as well as in the monitoring of disease activity and predicting 
      treatment efficacy. Although there is strong evidence supporting the use of MRI
      for both the diagnosis and monitoring of disease activity, there is a lack of
      evidence regarding which MRI protocols to use, the frequency of examinations, and
      in what clinical situations to consider MRI examination. A national workshop to
      discuss these issues was held in Stockholm, Sweden, in August 2015, which
      resulted in a Swedish consensus statement regarding the use of MRI in the care of
      individuals with MS. The aim of this consensus statement is to provide practical 
      advice for the use of MRI in this setting. The recommendations are based on a
      review of relevant literature and the clinical experience of workshop attendees. 
      It is our hope that these recommendations will benefit individuals with MS and
      guide healthcare professionals responsible for their care.
