Scoring Tools for a standardised, quantified neurological examination and assessment of Kurtzke’s Functional Systems and the Expanded Disability Status Scale in Multiple Sclerosis
In order to assure high reliability of assessment it is essential to have a standardised examination and consistent definitions for the Functional System scores.
It is highly recommended that physicians seeking certification first become familiarised with the Neurostatus Scoring Documents or equivalent case report forms for the respective study.
