Accurate knowledge of the magnetic properties of human blood is required for the precise modeling of functional and vascular flow-related MRI. Herein are reported determinations of the relaxation parameters of blood, employing in vitro samples that are well representative of human blood in situ. The envelope of the blood (1)H(2)O free-induction decay signal… CONTINUE READING
