Clinical diagnosis of pediatric-onset multiple sclerosis (POMS) is challenging, and MRI diagnostic criteria has imperfect sensitivity and specificity. The central vein sign (CVS) is a promising marker for POMS, however, most literature evaluating the central vein sign in POMS utilizes only the axial fluid attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) and susceptibility weigted imaging (SWI) sequences.

We investigate whether it is possible to detect the CVS with the GRE sequence. Read More
