Editorial Review:
Doctors Oscar Bacelar, Ana De Vera, E.Radue with clinical advisor Ludwig Kappoos have done a commendable job in the CD tutorial MS in MRI. They are all affiliated with MS-MRI Evaluation Centre, Neuroradiology in University Hospital Basel.

Although this reviewer thinks the title should be MRI in MS, this is the only change I would suggest.

The tutorial reviews basics of MRI, with a focus on techniques relevant to MS. Newer technologies such as MRS and MTR are reviewed in the final chapter. I especially appreciated some of the clinical case histories with corresponding MRI's. This CD would be appropriate for anyone working with MS, but may be too basic for seasoned neuroradiologists or some MS specialists.

CD Content:
  • Preliminary Remarks
  • Diagnosing MS
  • Typical Lesions
  • Pitfalls
  • Differential Diagnosis
  • Monitoring the MS MRI Evolution
  • MRI Protocols and New Techniques
