This book provides a complete exposition of the theory of nuclear magnetic relaxation caused by the thermal motion of the molecule containing the relaxing nucleus. The author begins by defining the physical quantities encountered in nuclear magnetic resonance studies and surveying pioneering investigations in the field. Nuclear magnetic relaxation by scalar, dipolar, quadrupolar and spin-rotational interactions and by anisotropic chemical shift are then examined in detail. Relaxation rates are expressed in terms of spectral densities, and the values of the spectral densities for various molecular shapes are calculated by random walk or Brownian motion dynamics. The text should be within the grasp of readers who have taken undergraduate courses in electromagnetic theory and in classical and quantum mechanics, although topics in these fields of particular relevance are to be found in appendices. This book will be of value to postgraduate students and research workers using n.m.r. in physics and physical chemistry departments, and by scientists in industrial and medical research.

Author: William W. Paudler
Describes the use of NMR for structural and mechanistic studies in organic and inorganic chemistry and biochemistry. Theory is presented in semi-empirical fashion, and only a minimal mathematical approach applied. Describes the original NMR experiment done using the low resolution technique and advances to the modern Fourier transform technique. In addition to chemical shifts, coupling constants, and double resonance, this book covers magic angle and treats inorganic and biological systems. Presentations include appropriate examples and problems.

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is a technique that is extensively used as a means of obtaining clinical images. When used in this way it is known as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In the form of magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), the technique can also be used to study tissue chemistry. This book introduces the technique of NMR, and discusses the ways in which MRI and MRS can be used to study biological systems.

The intention of this book is to provide the reader with a fundamental understanding of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Readers should be able to acquire a fundamental knowledge that enables them to pursue studies of their own and to cope with some of the most common problems, such as image contrast and artifacts or questions concerning possible hazards to patients.
The first edition of this book was published in 1984 as the primer for European Magnetic Resonance Forum to teach the basics and some of the applications of MR imaging and MR spectroscopy. Many organizers of other teaching courses and universities all over the world have found it valuable for their students.
The public reaction to and the reviews of the last edition were extremely positive. The book is very popular with radiologists, cardiologists, medical students and radiographers, who all encouraged the author to revise it again. The text and all the figures have been completely revised and new chapters have been added.
MR imaging not only requires knowledge of facts but also background information for decision-making. Therefore in this edition some subjective, critical, and opinion-oriented sections are included, intended to offset the technical nature of the book and provide insights into more practical questions faced by MR users.
A new addition is the MR Image Expert CD-ROM, an interactive learning and teaching tool for MR. It simulates the most important aspects of MR imaging on a personal computer. Dynalize is the second application included. It allows the presentation and analysis of dynamic MR imaging studies.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the most technically dependent imaging technique in radiology. To perform and interpret MRI studies correctly, an understanding of the basic underlying principles is essential. Understanding Magnetic Resonance Imaging explains the pulse sequences, imaging options, and coils used to produce MR images, providing a strong foundation for performing and interpreting imaging studies. The text is complemented by more than 100 figures and 25 photomicrographs illustrating the techniques discussed. Radiology residents, MR technologists, and radiologists should not be without Understanding Magnetic Resonance Imaging-the only single resource that explains all technical aspects of MRI, including recent advances, and presents all imaging options.

Author: Brian Cowan
Brand: B P Cowan
This book provides an introduction to the general principles of nuclear magnetic resonance and relaxation, concentrating on simple models and their application. It includes an introduction to the ideas and applications of nuclear magnetic resonance and emphasizes the concepts of relaxation and the time domain. Some relatively advanced topics are treated, but the approach is graduated and all points of potential difficulty are carefully explained. An introductory classical discussion of relaxation is followed by a quantum-mechanical treatment. A selection of case studies is considered in depth, providing applications of the ideas developed in the text. There are a number of appendixes, including one on random functions. This treatment of one of the most important experimental techniques in modern science will be of great value to final-year undergraduates, graduate students and researchers using nuclear magnetic resonance, particularly physicists, and especially those involved in the study of condensed matter physics.

Author: Michael Mehring
This book presents, for the first time, a unified treatment of the quantum mechanisms of magnetic resonance, including both nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and electron spin resonance (ESR). Magnetic resonance is perhaps the most advanced type of spectroscopy and it is applied in biology, chemistry, physics, material science, and medicine. If applied in conjunction with spectroscopy, the imaging version of magnetic resonance has no counterpart in any type of experimental technique.
The authors present explanations and applications from fundamental to advanced levels. Additionally, they pave the way to successfully simulating magnetic resonance phenomena numerically through an accompanying CD-ROM.

Author: Norman F. Ramsey
This invaluable volume contains a biography of Nobel laureate Norman F Ramsey as well as reprints and retrospective commentaries on 56 papers relating to spectroscopy with coherent radiation. The earliest papers describe his work with I I Rabi, developing the then new magnetic resonance method and its uses to measure magnetic moments of the different forms of hydrogen and to discover the deuteron electric quadrupole moment. Later papers include his invention of the method of coherent separated oscillatory fields, the development of the atomic hydrogen maser and the uses of these methods to measure properties of nucleons, nuclei, atoms and molecules and to test parity and time reversal symmetries. Other papers present the first successful theories of nuclear magnetic shielding, NMR chemical shifts, electron-coupled nuclear spin-spin interactions and negative absolute temperatures.
