Will an SSEP test show MS or can it show lesions that may have been hidden on an MRI?
An SSEP (somatosensory evoked potential) can detect abnormalities not visible on MRI but is not specific for MS, technically challenging and often difficult to interpret unless there are obvious asymmetries when they test both sides of the body
