    The purpose of this study is to determine whether magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) cytography (a type of noninvasive body scan) is useful in establishing disease severity in individuals with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

    MRI cytography will be compared to measures typically taken at clinic visits that measure motor neuron and cognitive functions to see if it may be related to disease status.

    In most cases, participants will attend a one-time clinic visit, though the option of two separate study visits may be available.
