Basics of Magnetic Resonance Imaging

  • Thomas J. Vogl


The first MR experiments were reported independently by Bloch at Stanford University and by Purcell at Harvard University in 1946. The first two-dimensional proton MR image was produced in 1972, when Lauterbur of New York State University measured a water sample [29].
