The information presented in these pages is intended to describe some of the many assessment scales that have been used in multiple sclerosis and does not represent an exhaustive list. Inclusion of a scale in this list does not imply an endorsement or recommendation by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society or its advisors. Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information contained in these pages.
The description of each scale has been peer reviewed by one or more MS specialists familiar with the scale in question. A list of these reviewers can be found in the Acknowledgements. Visitors to these pages are encouraged to contact Dr. Nicholas LaRocca at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society with comments concerning this material, including suggestions for scales to be added to the current list.
