Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) (formerly called nuclear magnetic resonance imaging) provides very-highresolution images without ionizing radiation. There is also the potential for more elaborate imaging, including flow, diffusion, and the signature of particular atomic environments.
