Figure 3

Groups and contrasts combinations of MS lesion -scores for T1, T2, and and MTR contrasts, as observed in our cohort of RRMS patients. Blue: parameter decrease; red: parameter increase. Group 1: lesions with no significant q/sq MRI contrasts changes; Group 2: lesions with prevalent inflammatory oedema; Group 3: lesions with prevalent tissue degeneration with or without inflammation; and Group 4: lesions with prevalent tissue loss.
