Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has had a dramatic impact on multiple sclerosis (MS) in both clinical practice and basic science. It has increased the level of certainty with which the diagnosis of MS can be made, improved our understanding of the pathogenesis and the natural history of the disease and, most importantly, provided objective and reliable measures to monitor the effects of experimental treatments.
