Iron in MS cortical lesions

Changes in iron accumulation within cells gave rise to imaging contrast seen between cortical lesions and normal cortex, as well as the patchy signal in NAWM.

Densely packed myelin and collagen deposition also contributed to MRM signal changes.

Even though we studied only one block each from normal appearing and cortical lesions, such studies can help better understand the origins of histopathological and microstructural correlates of MRI signal changes in multiple sclerosis and contextualize the interpretation of lower-resolution in vivo MRI scans.
