Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) continues to evolve, providing almost boundless information about tissue structure and function that can be obtained noninvasively in vivo. MRI is a key tool in the diagnosis and longitudinal monitoring of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). The technique is highly sensitive for the definition of brain and spinal cord involvement in MS, including the ability to detect multifocal lesions, diffuse (occult) disease, and macroscopic atrophy.
