1H Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopic techniques (1H-MRS) have been utilised to assess inflammatory nature of both acute and chronic lesions as well as normal appearing brain tissue to understand the neuro degenerative irreversible component of multiple sclerosis (MS) from early stages1-3. However, due to high spectral overlap in one-dimensional (1D) 1H-MRS, it has been challenging to establish a standard specific spectral pattern in plaques or normal appearing brain tissues. L-COSY might provide the needed spectral dispersion
