Paper Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging (MM) using optically polarized 3He is a new and very promising diagnostic method for studying structure and function of lungs. A novel low field MRI system based on permanent magnet and a home-built 3He polarizing unit is presented. The system is designed to perform experiments on small animals. First 1H and 3He images of phantoms small biological objects and rat lungs in vivo are shown.
