Abstract

15.4 Conclusions: In white matter conditions, high-field MRI does the same as lower field MRI, but does it better. Although this simplified description might be correct, it would not reflect the full range of advantages and exciting possibilities that come with the development of higher field MR systems. MRI has been, and still is, an invaluable tool to study MS in vivo. High-field MRI will certainly further strengthen the role of MRI as the most sensitive paraclinical tool available for early diagnosis of MS. Both conventional and non-conventional MR techniques will take advantage of the use of high-field MR systems to study MS, as well as other white matter diseases.
