Quantitative MR diffusion imaging in multiple sclerosis is a promising tool for deciphering the mechanisms and processes during the disease progression. We employed new MR diffusion acquisition techniques (like SMS) as well as advanced post-processing (like NODDI, SMT) in order to investigate the differences in normal appearing white matter of MS patients in contrast to healthy volunteers.
