  Flair Images With Enhancement Suppressed

This type of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study looks at the brain with 24 sagittal (vertical - front to back) cuts beginning at right side of the brain and moving to the left.
Flair images allow the signal from cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) to be suppressed so existing lesions are easier to see.
(Examples of multiple long-term lesions can be seen best on images 5.6 to 5.9 and 5.11 to 5.14)

  T1-Weighting

This type of MRI study looks at the brain with 25 sagittal (vertical - front to back) cuts.
T1-weighting causes the nerve connections of white matter to appear white, and the congregations of neurons of gray matter to appear gray, while CSF appears dark.
These will show current disease activity if present (which there is none present).
