Multiple sclerosis. Fluid attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of the brain of a 51 year old female patient with multiple sclerosis. White areas are hypersignals where the MRI scan shows plaques of demyelinisation, areas where the nerve insulating material myelin is absent. This is what causes the nervous system to malfunction in MS.
