"The Complex Process of Diagnosing MS"
No single test can diagnose multiple sclerosis (MS). Instead, your doctor will base a diagnosis on a combination of your health history and clinical findings, said Fred Lublin, MD, director of the Corinne Goldsmith Dickinson Center for Multiple Sclerosis at The Mount Sinai Hospital. "MS is a 'rule-in' diagnosis," said Dr. Lublin. "We use a clinical exam, diagnostic imaging, and other tests to make sure it's not something else."
