Paper Abstract

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) imaging has already attracted a great deal of attention because it is non-hazardous and because the intrinsic NMR contrast appears to be considerably higher than x-ray contrast. On the other hand, the in-vivo NMR characteristics of normal tissues are not well understood, and no reliable data exist on the potential for differentiating normal from abnormal tissues, or benign from malignant lesions.
