The aims of this study were to determine and compare the sensitivity of T2 turbo spin-echo (T2 TSE) and fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) sequences at 3.0 T in the detection of inflammatory lesions in patients with clinically isolated syndromes suggestive of multiple sclerosis. Forty-nine patients were examined with a 3.0 T MRI system using 5 mm axial sections of T2 TSE (2:19 min), FLAIR (4:00 min) and pre- and postcontrast T1 spin-echo sequences (3:37 min). Brain lesions were counted… CONTINUE READING
