Need guidance on MS

HI I am Elliot,a phd student, started research on MS. i am new in this filed. So i have some questions, can please anyone answer these questions. Ii’ll be appreciated.
my question are:
As I know T1 post contrast are used for active lesions and T2 are used for new lesions, so can we detect active lesions with T2, if we can’t then why is that reason.
If we can see active lesions in t2 then why we still use t1 post enhanced images.

Thanks in advance ofr help.

Is this not something you should be asking a neurologist or a MRI technician? What exactly is your PhD in?

Virtually yes. You could have a look at the CAB website for general benefits information. Or think about joining if you are claiming either ESA or PIP. They charge about £20, but it’s worth it for the guides to making claims.
