In synthetic MRI, the recently developed multi delay multi–echo fast spin echo sequence (MDME) with posterior mathematical fitting provide multiple image contrasts in a single sequence acquisition and lead to potential acquisition time reductions. In this study, both, a synthetic MRI and conventional post contrast acquisition protocol for the evaluation of patients with Multiple Sclerosis were compared. Significant acquisition time reduction were achieved with synthetic MRI without neglecting lesion count capabilities
