Paper Abstract

Nuclear magnetic resonance is a phenomenon which allows the generation of high quality medical images including the traditional transverse, coronal, and sagittal perspectives, while utilizing no ionizing radiation and without any known adverse biological effect. In addition, NNR imaging and diagnostic techniques allow the generation of basic chemical/pathophysiological measurements which have great promise to enhance the accuracy of medical diagnosis by providing more specific diagnostic information.
