NMR imaging and flow imaging

back to Magnetic resonance

NMR information is available with spatial resolution from imaging. All NMR information on structure and mobility can be utilized to generate contrast in the images without administering contrast agents.

The combination of NMR imaging and pulsed-field-gradient (PFG) NMR enables the measurement of flow pattern with spatial resolution (flow imaging).
