summary: In this review the authors highlight the advantages of new high field MRI techniques in showing damaged regions in the brain that with conventional techniques (standard field strengths) cannot be visualised. This improvement in depicting changes in brain tissue may help us to better understand the underlying processes occurring in MS, which at the same time may have a number of practical applications.

Following the approval of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), high field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been increasingly incorporated into the clinical setting. Especially in the field of neuroimaging, the number of high field MRI applications has been increased dramatically.
