Abstract

Conventional MRI does not reflect specific pathological aspects related to multiple sclerosis (MS) damage. As a result, correlations between clinical data and imaging are generally poor. Therefore, new advanced magnetic resonance techniques have been developed with the aim of better depicting the structural and functional changes induced by the disease. However, recent evidence suggests that novel applications of conventional MRI can also improve the characterization of MS damage and provide novel insights into the pathophysiology of MS.
