Understanding Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Multiple Sclerosis

Publication date: Mar 13, 2019

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) results play a major role in the lives of people with multiple sclerosis (pwMS). Even though MRI is used for diagnosis, prognosis and therapy control, pwMS’ knowledge concerning this complex matter is scarce. Without adequate disease-specific knowledge, pwMS cannot truly make an informed choice when considering their MRI results (e.g. necessity of future MRI scans or therapy change). The investigators have developed an innovative, evidence-based and interactive online education tool called “Understanding MRI in MS”, which incorporates all relevant information about MRI in MS and its implications in disease management. In this randomized, controlled and double-blind trial the tool’s effect on MRI-specific knowledge, self-perceived competence and involvement in medical decision, that are based on MRI results will be assessed.
