An estimation method for improved extraction of the decay curve signal from CPMG-like measurements with a unilateral scanner.
(NMR) spectroscopy and NMR imaging require a sample to be positioned in a homogeneous magnetic field inside a strong magnet. The instrumentation is large, and the sample is carried to the magnet for investigation. In unilateral NMR, the magnetic field is applied to the sample from one side. Such NMR devices can be built small so that they are portable and can be carried to the object. The magnetic field penetrating the object is inhomogeneous, and only a limited number of the wide variety of different NMR experiments can be performed. Nevertheless the information N
