The International Panel on MS Diagnosis presents revised diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis (MS). The focus remains on the objective demonstration of dissemination of lesions in both time and space. Magnetic resonance imaging is integrated with clinical and other paraclinical diagnostic methods. The revised criteria facilitate the diagnosis of MS in patients with a variety of presentations, including “monosymptomatic” disease suggestive of MS, disease with a typical relapsing‐remitting… Expand
[Revision of McDonald's new diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis].
TLDR
Recent experiences with the McDonald criteria are presented and substantial changes affect MRI criteria for the dissemination of lesions over time, the role of spinal cord lesions in the MRI and diagnosis of primary progressive MS are presented. Expand
Consensus guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of multiple sclerosis
TLDR
This article provides guidelines, derived from clinical experience as well as evidence-based medicine, for the diagnosis and management of MS with special emphasis on practices in the Middle East. Expand
New diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis
TLDR
One year after symptom onset, more than three times as many patients with CIS were diagnosed with MS using new diagnostic criteria incorporating MRI results compared to older criteria, however, the proposed MRI criteria require further prospective studies to optimize sensitivity and specificity. Expand
Role of magnetic resonance imaging within diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis
TLDR
This review considers current evidence concerning the reliability of the new IP criteria for the diagnosis of relapsing‐onset MS, discusses strengths and weaknesses of the criteria, and outlines areas which may need modification or should be the focus of future research directed toward improving diagnostic accuracy. Expand
New diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis

Update on the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis
  • D. Mattson
  • Medicine
  • Expert review of neurotherapeutics
  • 2002
TLDR
Recent availability of first generation immunotherapies for MS has increased pressure to make an early and accurate diagnosis of multiple sclerosis and to use the diagnostic work-up to try to prognosticate a future disease course. Expand
Application of the new McDonald criteria to patients with clinically isolated syndromes suggestive of multiple sclerosis
TLDR
Using the new McDonald criteria more than doubled the rate of diagnosis of MS within a year of presentation with a clinically isolated syndrome and the high specificity, positive predictive value, and accuracy of the new criteria for clinically definite MS support their clinical relevance. Expand
A Clinical Approach to the Differential Diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis
TLDR
A clinical framework for the differential diagnosis of MS that emphasizes phenotypes atypical for MS and suggests diseases or syndromes in which they more commonly occur may be an important diagnostic guide for clinicians in contemporary practice. Expand
Guidelines for differential diagnosis of suspected multiple sclerosis
TLDR
The guidelines demonstrate the potential complexity of MS diagnosis—especially during the early stages of disease—and give useful guidance, especially for the non-MS neurologist, as to how to approach the diagnosis in a systematic way. Expand
Diagnosing multiple sclerosis: Recognizing symptoms and diagnostic testing
TLDR
The criteria currently in use are the revised McDonald criteria, which are predominantly based on MRI scanning, and the relevant paraclinical tests are explained in a little more detail. Expand

New diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis: Guidelines for research protocols
TLDR
Today there is a need for more exact criteria than existed earlier in order to conduct therapeutic trials in multicenter programs, to compare epidemiological surveys, to evaluate new diagnostic procedures, and to estimate the activity of the disease process in MS. Expand
Diagnostic criteria for primary progressive multiple sclerosis: A position paper
TLDR
New diagnostic criteria developed by a group of investigators on the basis of a review of their considerable experience with primary progressive multiple sclerosis require prospective validation in a cohort of newly diagnosed patients and by postmortem examination. Expand
Isolated demyelinating syndromes: comparison of different MR imaging criteria to predict conversion to clinically definite multiple sclerosis.
TLDR
The four dichotomized MR imaging parameters proposed by Barkhof et al are more specific and accurate than the criteria proposed by Paty et al or Fazekas et al for predicting conversion to clinically definite multiple sclerosis. Expand
Assessing the risk of early multiple sclerosis in patients with clinically isolated syndromes: the role of a follow up MRI.
TLDR
Serial imaging in patients with clinically isolated syndromes improved the positive predictive value, sensitivity, and specificity of MRI for the development of early multiple sclerosis and also identified patients at a lower risk of earlymultiple sclerosis than would have been expected from their abnormal baseline MRI. Expand
Practice parameter: The usefulness of evoked potentials in identifying clinically silent lesions in patients with suspected multiple sclerosis (an evidence-based review)
TLDR
To determine the effectiveness of EP-identified silent lesions in diagnosing MS, a systematic review and analysis of the literature is performed and practice parameters for the use of EPs in patients with suspected MS are proposed. Expand
MRI in the diagnosis of MS
TLDR
MRI was the best method for demonstrating dissemination in space and laboratory-supported definite MS (LSDMS) could be diagnosed in 85 patients of the total 200, and MRI predicted that diagnosis in 18/19 (95%). Expand
Comparison of MRI criteria at first presentation to predict conversion to clinically definite multiple sclerosis.
TLDR
It is concluded that a four-parameter dichotomized MRI model including gadolinium-enhancement, juxtacortical, infratentorial and periventricular lesions best predicts conversion to clinically definite multiple sclerosis. Expand
Criteria for an increased specificity of MRI interpretation in elderly subjects with suspected multiple sclerosis
TLDR
Applying these criteria to the MRIs of elderly patients with suspected MS should significantly improve specificity over current quantitative criteria (at least three AIS≥3 mm) without significantly decreasing sensitivity. Expand
Multisequence MRI in clinically isolated syndromes and the early development of MS
TLDR
The combination of baseline MRI abnormalities and new lesions at follow-up, indicating dissemination in space and time, was associated with a high sensitivity and specificity for the early development of clinical MS. Expand
Assessment of MRI criteria for a diagnosis of MS
To test the reliability of four previously proposed MRI criteria for the diagnosis of MS, we reviewed 1,500 consecutive brain scans for the presence, number, size, and location of areas of increasedExpand
