  T2-Weighting

This type of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study looks at the brain with 20 transverse (horizontal) cuts beginning at the base and working to the top.
T2-weighting causes the nerve connections of white matter to appear gray, and the congregations of neurons of gray matter to appear white, while the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) appears light.
These will show current disease activity if present (which there is not).

  Flair Images With Enhancement Suppressed

This type of MRI study looks at the brain with 20 transverse cuts from base to top.
Flair images allow the signal from cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) to be suppressed so existing lesions are easier to see.
(Examples of multiple long-term lesions can be seen best on images 4.6 to 4.7, 4.10 to 4.14 & 4.16)
