A third of patients with suspect scans develop the disease within 5 years, study finds

Posted December 10, 2008

WEDNESDAY, Dec. 10 (HealthDay News) -- Among people whose brain scans show signs of multiple sclerosis but who have no symptoms, one-third will develop MS within about five years, researchers say.

The study included 44 people who had MRI brain scans for a variety of reasons, including migraines or head trauma. The scans detected abnormalities similar to those that occur in MS. After the researchers confirmed these abnormalities were MS-related and ruled out other causes, they followed the patients for a number of years to find out if they developed the disease.
