Abstract

We used quantitative proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-MRS) to evaluate mean relative concentrations ratios for NAA, Cr, Cho and ml during the study of cervical spinal cord plaques in a relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). A cervical spine MR exam was repeated five times on the following days for two months starting from the onset of a relapse phase, using a 3T whole-body system, with the voxel placed along the demyelinazation lesion. The quantification results were compared with the healthy metabolites content. Quantitative cervical spectroscopy is a reliable tool and can offer important metabolic information as already used on the brain to evaluate the severity, progression and pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis.
