Medical imaging by NMR.


Application of the new nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) method of fast scan proton imaging is described. Cross sectional proton scans of a human finger in vivo are measured and reveal considerable anatomical detail, particularly of the soft tissue regions. Imaging of tumour tissue is also briefly discussed.
