  • Conventional MRI, cMRI sequences-used for studying MS patients, dual-echo and post-contrast T1-weighted scan
  • Conventional magnetic resonance imaging (cMRI)-proven to be sensitive for detecting multiple sclerosis (MS) lesions and their changes over time
  • Diagnostic evaluation of patients, suspected of having MS-characterization of lesions profiles suggestive of disease
  • European Federation of Neurological Society (EFNS) task force
  • Functional MRI, fMRI-abnormal pattern of movement-cortical activation in CIS patients within 3 months of disease onset
  • Individuals without overt clinical symptoms-but with MRI features, suggestive of MS, defined ' radiologically isolated syndromes' (RIS)
  • MRI in patients with CDMS
  • Non-conventional MRI-(1) MT-MRI-reduced MT ratio (MTR) values
  • Rigorous and valid strategy for MR-based longitudinal monitoring of MS-use of standardized imaging protocols
  • Use of imaging in multiple sclerosis
