Paper Abstract

A magnetic resonance imaging system for investigation and development of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) imaging techniques is being constructed by the NMR, Imaging Group within the School of Electrical Engineering at the University of Sydney. The system will also be capable of spatially-localized in-vivo spectroscopy. Primary requirements of a research instrument are flexibility and low cost, precluding purchase of a commercial system and necessitating in-house construction. The appropriate design strategy adopted was to start by building a simple NMR apparatus and expand it in steps, progressing towards a complete imaging and spectroscopy system.
