Introduction: In patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides only limited insights into the nature of brain damage with modest clinic-­radiological correlation. In this study, we applied recent advances in MRI techniques to study brain microstructural alterations in earlyrelapsing-­remitting MS (RRMS) patients with minor deficits. Further, we investigated the potential use of advanced MRI to predict functional performances in these patients.

Abstract

Introduction: In patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides only limited insights into the nature of brain damage with modest clinic-­radiological correlation. In this study, we applied recent advances in MRI techniques to study brain microstructural alterations in earlyrelapsing-­remitting MS (RRMS) patients with minor deficits. Further, we investigated the potential use of advanced MRI to predict functional performances in these patients.
