The article presents a study which explores the use of gradient echo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for quantifying the severity of multiple sclerosis (MS) white matter lesions. gradient echo MRI was specifically used to correlate the disability, differentiate clinical MS subtypes, and determine prevalence of veins co-localized with lesions. An overview of the methods of the study is given, along with a discussion of its results and conclusions.
