Averaging multiple SPGRs created a single high SNR volume, allowing identification of cortical lesions. Because data were obtained monthly for 1 year, the average image does not account for transient lesion activity. However, for cortical lesions that remained stable during this time, the findings are valid in demonstrating the importance of high SNR images for detecting cortical brain abnormalities in MS.
