Novel imaging biomarkers for the diagnosis and study of Neuromyelitis optica

Abstract:

Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) is a relapsing demyelinating neurological condition that requires prompt diagnosis and treatment to prevent the accrual of significant disability, such as blindness and immobility. It is caused by antibodies to the aquaporin-4 water channel, which can be detected within the serum of patients and are therefore a highly specific biomarker for the condition.
