Value of central vein sign in discriminating multiple sclerosis plaques from other white matter lesions
This study's purpose was to assess the ability of the central vein sign (CVS) to differentiate MS plaques from non MS white matter lesions (WMLs).MethodsOut of 18 patients, 9 had MS, 3 had systemic lupus erythematosus, 4 had hypertensive microangiopathy and 2 had Behcet’s disease. 3 T MRI examination was performed to obtain fluid attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) and the SW images. Lesions more than 3 mm were identified and analyzed for location and existence of the CVS.ResultsOut of 572 MS lesions, 281 lesions were positive for the CVS, while only 66 out of 279 non MS lesions were CVS positive with a statist...
