Abstract

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by functional connectivity alterations in both motor and extra-motor brain regions. Assessing clinical progression in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) remains a challenge. Our objective was to assess the effectiveness, utility, precision, and validity of the King's staging system and the Milano-Torino Staging (MiToS) system by comparing them in terms of charting disease progression within a clinical setting.
