Cognitive dysfunction in patients with multiple sclerosis is quite common and has a great impact on the quality of patient’s social and professional life. High frequency and severity of these symptoms encourage objectivization of their morphological correlates. Besides the conventional magnetic resonance imaging techniques, commonly used for the disease diagnostics and activity monitoring, alternative procedures, such as magnetization transfer imaging, functional magnetic resonance, MR spectroscopy or diffusion tensor imaging, are also available. The use of the majority of these techniques is currently rather experimental and their practical application is under intensive investigation.
