- Is the frequency of abnormalities on magnetic resonance imaging in isolated optic neuritis related to the prevalence of multiple sclerosis? A global comparisonJ K Swanton
NMR Research Unit, Institute of Neurology, University College London, Queen Square, London, UK
J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 77:1070-2. 2006..These observations may support the hypothesis that optic neuritis is more likely to be associated with abnormalities on MRI and to be due to multiple sclerosis in geographical regions where multiple sclerosis is more common...
