Conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques have proved useful in the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) and to monitor its activity and evolution, be this natural or modified by treatment. The recent development and clinical application of non-conventional MRI techniques has the potential to increase the importance of MRI further in the evaluation of MS by reducing the acquisition times, improving sensitivity to disease changes and increasing the pathological specificity of the abnormalities detected. In the present review, the main contributions of these newer MRI techniques to the evaluation of MS are presented.
