Abstract
While developing a human size NMR imager, a small aperture imaging system is being used to characterize NMR responses in intact rats. The basic response of our imaging technique to the T1 and T2 relaxation times is presented. Based on this response, T1, T2 and relaxation independent "hydrogen" images are computed. These computed mages of normal rats demonstrate that most of the contrast in NMR images is due to the relaxation times. Work on some possible hazards in NMR is summarized.
