We compared the sensitivity of standard- and triple-dose gadolinium-DTPA magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in detecting enhancing lesions within the spinal cord of 13 patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). We detected two enhancing lesions in two (15%) patients when the standard dose of gadoliniumDTPA was used and 12 lesions in 5 (38%) patients when the triple dose of gadolinium-DTPA was used. These results indicate that triple dose enhanced MRI might be useful to monitoring disease activity in MS.
