Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Major strides have been made over the last two decades in terms of understanding, identification, and subsequent treatment of multiple sclerosis. Despite our increased understanding of the disease there remain many challenges. These challenges are especially poignant in pediatric MS which provides a different set of challenges in treating this population. Although there remain challenges in treatment hopefully in the future more patients will live in a disease free state or with significant reduction is disease activity. Significant strides have been made in regards to the understanding of pediatric MS and the first clinical trials are starting to look at treatment effects in these populations. This chapter will briefly review some of the emerging imaging techniques and concepts which will likely be implemented in the future treatment of pediatric MS.
