Here is My Question:
Is ‘stable’ a good MRI result 18 months post-aletizumab? Is it the same as NEDA?
We prefer explicit descriptions in our MRI reports. Words like "large", "numerous", or "small" are vague and of no meaning. "Stable" on the other hand means there are no changes, for better or worse, compared to a prior study. "Stable" would be equivalent to 'No Evidence of Disease Activity' (NEDA3), if there are no new or enlarging T2 hyperintensities and no enhancing lesions.
