ECTRIMS 2022 | The value of including optic nerve lesions in MS diagnostic criteria

Angela Vidal-Jordana, MD, PhD, Multiple Sclerosis Centre of Catalonia (Cemcat), Vall d’Hebron University Hospital, Barcelona, Spain, discusses the value of including optic nerve lesions in the multiple sclerosis (MS) diagnostic criteria. In patients presenting with optic neuritis, occasionally, the MS diagnosis cannot be made with the MRI findings as it happens with other symptoms, leading to a delay in diagnosis and, in some cases, even a delay in initiating treatment. So far, it has been shown that including the optic nerve topography in the diagnostic criteria can improve the diagnosis of patients presenting with optic neuritis. This interview took place at the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS) Congress 2022 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
