Abstract

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) has been used for many years for spectroscopic chemical analysis, initially in vitro and more recently in vivo. The use of NMR in imaging began much later and has already generated interest in the medical community as a result of its ability to discriminate between different soft tissues.
