Abstract

The authors describe the basics of the nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) phenomenon. They also review NMR-detectable nuclides, spina'spin relaxation (characterized by the exponential time constant T1), spin'lattice relaxation (T2), and relaxation related to local magnetic field homogeneity (T2*). Finally, the authors refer briefly to some applications of NMR in addition to magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy.
