Abstract.In early relapsing-remitting (RR) multiple sclerosis (MS), conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has proved to be a valuable tool to assess disease activity over time. However, conventional MRI can only provide gross estimates of irreversible tissue damage within and outside such lesions. Other MR-based techniques, including magnetization transfer MRI, diffusion-weighted MRI, proton MR spectroscopy and functional MRI, have the potential to provide additional pieces of… CONTINUE READING
