The diagnostic utility of FLAIR imaging in clinically verified amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Hyperintensity in SWM and the dark line along the posterior rim of the precentral gyri appeared more frequently in the patients with ALS. SWM hyperintensity has a better specificity in association with clinically verified ALS, while the motor dark line has a better sensitivity. No correlation was found between the FLAIR findings and progression of the disease.
