will MRI's be more accurate during flare-ups?

I have had a brain MRI that shows many white spots. The neuro thinks it is MS...he wanted to wait a few months and do another MRI. Well it has been a few months now, and I have some flare-ups in between time with new symptoms, so he is doing a brain MRI w/contrast and a spinal MRI. (Never had the spinal one before). My question is: right now I am feeling pretty good, so will the MRI's still show him if it is MS or does the MRI's look ok when you aren't in the middle of a flare-up? Thanks!

I Had A Spinal, Neck And Brain MRI Done With Contrast. Had Contrast Inserted Twice. And I Had Anestisia Cause Im Clustraphobic! WHEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

They Should Still Be Able To See And Tell Everything Even Though U Feel Fine Now.

One Of My Neuros Said To Me, "Remember No Day Is Guaranteed!!! There Will Be Good Ones And Bad Ones. On Good Ones Dont Leave What U Can Do Today For Tomorrow, But Dont Over Do It!!"

Good Luck!!
