Diagnosis and Treatment

Multiple Sclerosis is a progressive disease of the central nervous system, or the brain and spinal cord. Patients with MS are often diagnosed during their peak years with families to support and careers to maintain.

Donor support has provided MS patients with the most sophisticated 3T magnetic resonance imaging in the world. This technology facilitates the process of selecting the right medication and makes the treatment plans for different types of MS more effective.

Dr. Christian Beaulieu, Scientific Director of the Peter S. Allen MRI Research Center, talks about advanced brain imaging.

Defining the cause and cure for MS is the number one goal of MS researchers. The finest 3T MR imaging available will help our researchers and clinicians in this important field.
