Usually a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis can be made over months to years and it is based on MRI, , electro physiological potentials from the brain and the presence of abnormal cells in the cerebrospinal fluid (fluid surrounding the brain). MRI can show varying lesions in multiple sclerosis. MRI can vary greatly in terms of sensitivity and specificity in the diagnosis of MS. This is especially true of primary progressive MS, which may not show the classic discrete lesions of relapsing-remitting MS. This is again correlated with clinical symptoms and blood tests.
