Magnetization transfer MR imaging in multiple sclerosis

Neuroimaging Clin N Am. 2009 Feb;19(1):27-36. doi: 10.1016/j.nic.2008.09.004.


We introduce the fundamental aspects of MT, of MT MR imaging, and the respective analysis techniques. We then review the applications of MT MR imaging to multiple sclerosis. Finally we review the technique's contribution to our understanding of this disease.
