Abstract

Magnetic resonance images (MRI), evoked responses (ER), and CSF findings were compared in 39 patients with possible, probable, or definite MS. MRI disclosed multiple lesions (72%) more often than ERs (55%) in the total group of patients. In possible MS, MRI showed multiple lesions in 71%, and ER abnormalities were found in 41%. MRI is the preferred test for patients with suspected MS, but ERs are useful when MRI is normal and in the evaluation of optic nerve or spinal cord lesions.
