Magnetic Resonance Imaging MRI and spectroscopy

Computed Tomography Fatty Liver

Positioning of measured samples in strong homogeneous magnetic fields forces protons within the sample to align according to the direction of the magnetic field and thus create a macroscopic magnetisation of the sample. Interaction of spins with externally applied radiofrequency RF waves at the resonant frequency changes the magnitude and direction Figure 13.3 Assessment of Abdominal Fat Storage by Computed Tomography CT Representative cross-sectional abdominal CT scans of a lean A and an obese...
