Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is a technique that is extensively used as a means of obtaining clinical images. In the form of magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), the technique can also be used to study tissue chemistry. In this revised and updated second edition, the technique of NMR isintroduced, and the ways in which MRI and MRS can be used to study living systems are discussed, with an emphasis on applications in man. There are chapters which illustrate applications of magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) and imaging (MRI), including the new methods of functional imaging. Chapters also cover the basic principles of the techniques, the parameters that characterize NMR signals, instrumentation, and pulsesequences.Gadian, David G. is the author of 'Nmr+its Applications to Living Systems' with ISBN 9780198552819 and ISBN 0198552815.
