SOP facilitates diagnosis of MS
A diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) is always based on several components and follows clearly defined clinical criteria. For the clinical practice, the McDonald criteria as revised in 2010 have become widely accepted. In addition to clinical findings, these criteria include paraclinical results from magnetic resonance tomography as well as serum and cerebrospinal tests. Both of the latter are also used particularly for the differential diagnosis of MS.
Clear, concise, tried and tested: SOPs
For the daily routine in clinics and medical practices, diagnostic guidelines and SOPs (standard operating procedures) have been proven of value because they are simply and clearly structured. The KKNMS has therefore developed its own SOPs for diagnosing MS to provide neurologists with the best possible guidelines for routine procedures.
