    Correct answer:

    Yes, it's MS.

    In this case, the characteristic 'Dawson fingers' are clearly visible; these are the white-matter lesions expanding next to (and from within) the periventricular veins. There's also brain atrophy present, indicating the disease has been present for some time already.
