Nuclear magnetic resonance imaging in medicine and biology
Since the first publications on the subject in 1973, NMR imaging has grown rapidly and has evolved a wide variety of imaging techniques and systems. This book gives the reader a sound physical understanding of the theoretical and practical aspects of the field. Morris explains the basic theory and describes the imaging systems most frequently encountered, including the two- and three-dimensional methods used in commercial systems. Instrumentation and magnet choice and design are fully discussed, and there is an extensive chapter on applications. For medical physicists, NMR imaging researchers, radiologists, clinicians, and scientists and engineers involved in NMR imaging development.
