  • NMR spectroscopy requires magnetic fields sufficiently homogeneous across a typically 5-mm diameter sample tube to resolve differences in the chemical shift of 0.01 ppm = 10-8

  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) does not primarily aim at resolving chemical shift differences

  • The dominating signal in medical MRI results from water, which produces a single resonance line in the 1H NMR spectrum
