Abstract
Preliminary results have been obtained with two NMR imaging machines. High resolution images of anatomical cross sections can be produced with good soft tissue contrast and several tissue characteristics can be measured quantitatively. Functional studies are possible using paramagnetic materials as contrast agents, and blood flow effects can be readily demonstrated. NMR imaging therefore combines several features of other imaging methods in a single technique, which promises to make it a versatile tool for radiology.
