Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy: Fundamentals
Spectroscopic analysis using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) has long been employed in the field of chemistry and has more recently found a variety of applications in the biochemically based investigation of human metabolism and pathology. In this chapter the physical basis of NMR and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) will be briefly outlined, followed by explanations of principles underlying modern applications of MRS to investigations of human pathology in vivo. To the extent possible, the explanations will be confined to terms of classical physics.
