    The diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is based on clinical findings that are characterized by sudden neurological deficits in different parts of the CNS. Dissemination of lesions in space and time is the basic criterion. MRI can demonstrate most precisely any changes in the water content of...

    Three-dimensional (3D) turbo spin-echo (TSE) images have been used in imaging of the extremities and comparable diagnostic performance to two-dimensional (2D) TSE images has been reported in several studies. However, comparison of the 3D isotropic TSE intermediate-weighted sequence and 3D FFE...
