Abstract
Not since the advent of x-ray transmission computed tomography a decade ago has an innovation in medical imaging generated as much interest as that currently directed to nuclear magnetic resonance. This technique, long a standby in chemistry and physics laboratories, promises to provide images of reasonable spatial resolution and exquisite contrast sensitivity. In addition, quantitative analysis of specific elements in selected regions of tissue may be possible. In developing a strategy for the acquisition of nuclear magnetic resonance, cost factors must be considered together with a realistic appraisal of a clinical facility as primarily a research or clinical unit.
