Note.—Statistics were calculated with non-parametric Spearman correlation coefficient (

*r*) analysis, showing the_{S}*P*and*r*values. Results are significant at_{S}*P*< .05. Note a weak statistical significance only between T2 lesion volume and EDSS score (.0434), but the small associated*r*indicates that this correlation accounts for only approximately 10% of the variations in the data._{S}
