  2. 2. Definition <ul><li>“ multiple sclerosis (MS),  also called disseminated sclerosis, a progressive disease of the central nervous system characterized by the destruction of the myelin sheath surrounding the nerve fibres of the brain , spinal cord , and optic nerves . As a result, the transmission of nerve impulses becomes impaired, particularly in pathways involved with vision, sensation, and movement” (encyclopedia britannica). </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;multiple sclerosis (MS).&quot; Encyclopædia Britannica. Encyclopædia Britannica Online . Encyclopædia Britannica, 2011. Web. 07 Apr. 2011. < http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/397172/multiple-sclerosis >. </li></ul>
  3. 3. How is it diagnosed? <ul><li>&quot;The potential of MRI of the spinal cord as a diagnostic tool in MS has recently gained much interest. Dual echo spin echo MRI is most sensitive for the detection of spinal-cord abnormalities, which range from multiple focal lesions to confluent areas of high signal intensity. In some patients, commonly those with primary progressive disease, diffuse areas of slightly increased signal intensity are found,&quot; scientists in the Netherlands report. </li></ul>http:// elibrary.bigchalk.com/elibweb/elib/do/document?set = search&dictionaryClick = on&secondaryNav =& groupid =1&requestid= lib_standard&resultid =6&edition=& ts =8A004509570E5824DB90B57BEE02FE93_1302202349074&start=1&publicationId=&urn=urn%3Abigchalk%3AUS%3BBCLib%3Bdocument%3B86488369
