A Robust and Fast Algorithm for Quantifying Spinal Cord Cross-sectional Area in Myelitis (P6.136)

CONCLUSIONS:These results suggest that the pattern of spinal cord tissue damage is specific to the underlying inflammatory disease. Our method could be used not only to develop an imaging marker for disease, but also to serve as a surrogate end point in clinical trials.Study Supported by:Intramural NIHDisclosure: Dr. Nair has nothing to disclose.
