In this study, we evaluated the effect of imprecision in patient repositioning encountered in real life on multiple sclerosis (MS) lesion volumes measured from MRIs. We also evaluated two putative methods for reducing the variability in these lesion volume measurements: first, a reduction of slice thickness (from the conventional 5 mm to 3 mm) and second, the application of a new repositioning technique based on the use of head immobilization shells. We evaluated the errors in lesion volume by… CONTINUE READING
