This is a small world, isn't it?
What is really important in MS is the clinical condition. MRIs are images that we can't really evaluate, in terms of damage type. Can you specify how the cord appears on the MRI? Is it hyper- or hypo- intense?
Like I said, hypointensity means that there is some tissue missing. Hyperintensity is a hallmark of inflammation, but not always. It can be scarring (astrocytes), demyelination, either or both. What is your radiologist's opinion about this matter?
Such findings are common in MS.
MS spinal cord abnormalities can be divided into three main types: (1) focal, well demarcated areas of high signal intensity on T2-WI; (2) diffuse abnormalities seen as poorly demarcated areas of increased signal intensity on T2-WI; and (3) spinal cord atrophy and axonal loss.
