Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and spectroscopy are powerful tools in demonstrating and monitoring pathological processes of the brain and spinal cord. Multiple sclerosis (MS), a common and as yet incurable disease of the brain and spinal cord, is being studied intensively using these techniques. They perform a major role in facilitating the diagnosis, understanding the mechanisms of symptoms and in monitoring the effect of new treatments. From experts in the field, this extensively illustrated text provides a comprehensive review of the benefits and limitations of MR in the study of MS. Coverage ranges through the contributions of MR, the variety of techniques available, diagnosis and differential diagnosis, MR as a predictor of clinical course, MR views of pathophysiology and finally monitoring new treatment efficacy. This book will prove an invaluable aid to all neurologists, neuroradiologists and neuroscientists with an interest in MS.
