The slightest, barely discernible damage to the retina clearly differentiated on the unit fluorescence angiography of the ocular fundus. Sometimes to rule out in a patient diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, doctors require additional medical research. This:
- diagnostics of intracranial pressure;
- MRI of the brain;
