Jaume Sastre-Garriga, MD, PhD, Vall d’Hebron University Hospital, Barcelona, Spain, discusses the appropriate use of MRI in routine clinical practice. As novel imaging biomarkers such as central vein sign and paramagnetic rim lesions are developed, it is necessary to plan their implementation in routine clinical practice to ensure all patients have access to new diagnostic approaches. Guidelines on MRI in multiple sclerosis from MAGNIMS, CMSC, and NAIMS have recently been updated, but there is a critical need for advocacy and dissemination, particularly at the local level, to improve compliance. This interview took place at the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS) Congress 2022 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
