M.; Samson, Rebecca S.; Miller, David H.; Chard, Declan T. // Brain: A Journal of Neurology;May2015, Vol. 138 Issue 5, p1239 

    In multiple sclerosis, there is increasing evidence that demyelination, and neuronal damage occurs preferentially in cortical grey matter next to the outer surface of the brain. It has been suggested that this may be due to the effects of pathology outside the brain parenchyma, in particular...

    Patients with primary progressive multiple sclerosis may develop severe disability despite a paucity of lesions on conventional magnetic resonance imaging, raising the possibility that intrinsic changes in normal appearing white matter (NAWM) contribute to disability. This study has measured...

    Background and objective: The onset of multiple sclerosis is relapsing remitting or primary progressive. An improved understanding of the causes of early progressive disability in primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS) could provide mechanistic targets for therapeutic intervention....

    We assessed possible advantages of the use of fluid-attenuated inversion-recovery (FLAIR) sequences with magnetisation-transfer contrast (MTC) over conventional FLAIR images. We carried out cranial MRI at 1 tesla on 50 patients with both sequences. In nine patients with multiple sclerosis (MS)...

    The article reports on the result of the study which uses magnetization transfer ratio (MTR) techniques to determine the presence of both gray matter and normal-appearing white matter damage in multiple sclerosis (MS) groups. Result of the study confirms that presence of both gray matter and...

    Objective To assess metabolite levels in normal-appearing white matter in sporadic and familial multiple sclerosis (MS). Methods Using H-MRS and applying one voxel measure we assessed NAA/Cho,NAA/Cr and Cho/Cr ratios in 26 patients with sporadic and in 25 with familial MS and compared them with...

    Background In multiple sclerosis, grey matter (GM) damage appears more clinically relevant than either white matter damage or lesion load. Objective We investigated if normal-appearing white matter (NAWM) and grey matter tissue changes assessed by magnetization transfer ratio were associated...

    MTR and T1 relaxation times are abnormal in MS lesions and NAWM, and may reflect tissue damage such as demyelination and axonal loss. Their relationship and potential to provide complementary information in tissue characterisation is explored. The aim of this study was to document the...

    Diffusion tensor magnetic resonance imaging (DTI) indices are abnormal in patients with established multiple sclerosis (MS). The objective of this study was to examine the diffusion characteristics of MS lesions, normal appearing white matter (NAWM) and normal appearing grey matter (NAGM) in MS...

    OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether T2 lesion load and magnetisation transfer ratio (MTR) in the normal-appearing white matter (NAWM) and grey matter (GM) at study entry are independent predictors of progression and whether their changes correlate with the accrual of disability, over 5 years in...
