abstract

  • In patients with RRMS and gadolinium-nonenhancing lesions, the susceptibility values of NAWM decrease when gadolinium-enhancing lesions appear, approaching values similar to those of WM in healthy control subjects, suggesting that NAWM may contribute to the iron accumulation observed in early active MS lesions.
