The authors describe the fundamentals of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, including chemical shift, scalar coupling, resonance multiplets, quantitation, and the effects of field strength on spectral dispersion and signal-to-noise ratio. They also review single-voxel spectroscopy and chemical shift imaging. Examples are given of 1H spectra of dry ethanol solution and human brain.
