Enrolling: White Matter Evaluation with Stanford University

Researchers at Stanford University have discovered that the brains of patients with ME display abnormalities in the white matter within the right hemisphere. It is crucial to further the research involved with these findings as they may lead to more definitive diagnoses of ME.

    Dear All,

    Does one have to live in the USA to participate in the study?
    Can’t we do the necessary tests in European countries and send you the results?

      Good question.

    I participated in this study, but don’t live near Stanford. I had a recent MRI, so asked if I could just send that. I was told that the way they’re conducting the MRI is different, and thus had to be at the Stanford campus.
