Nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides a powerful means of not only distinguishing between different types of tissue but also of identifying whether the tissues are normal or diseased.






"..a fascinating insight into the field of MRI. He has managed to explain this complex subject in a clear and accessible way ... this lecture summarises many of the state-of-the-art techniques that are being developed in Cambridge and other research centres within the UK. Excellent viewing!"
