We propose a method to estimate multiple sclerosis (MS) lesion age (less than or greater than a year old) using non-gadolinium magnetic resonance imaging. The method utilizes the less invasive Quantitative Susceptibility Map. Radiomic features are calculated over a lesion and a random forest classification model is used. In a validation set, the model has an AUC of 0.79 (95% CI: [0.63, 0.86]) and an accuracy of 0.73 (95% CI: [0.60, 0.80]). This method can be used to aid in the diagnosis of MS, as part of the diagnostic criteria is to show lesion dissemination in time.
