Episode 16 - MRI Scans and MS

During this segment, the panelists discuss the increased utilization of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans and its impact in multiple sclerosis (MS).

Moderator Fred Lublin, MD, explains the relationship between MRI scans and radiologically isolated syndrome (RIS).

Although beneficial, Gary M. Owens, MD, explains that even in instances where MRI scans suggest MS, not all patients require treatment.

As explained by Dr Lublin, patient accessibility and affordability is also a challenge. Therefore, the panelists explain how radiology programs manage pre-approval processes for MRI scans.

Dr Owens concludes this segment by explaining that while many plans make it simple for patients with, or suspected of, MS to have access to MRI scans, a “broad net” is a consequence.During this segment, the panelists discuss the increased utilization of magnetic resonance imaging scans and its impact in multiple sclerosis.
