2 Julio 22, 2005 Imagenología por Resonancia Magnética Antecedentes MRI is based on the principles of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), a spectroscopic technique used to obtain microscopic chemical and physical information about molecules

3 Julio 22, 2005 Imagenología por Resonancia Magnética Phisics … Spin …is a fundamental property of nature. Spin comes in multiples of 1/2 and can be + or -. wo or more particles with spins having opposite signs can pair up to eliminate the observable manifestations of spin … two or more particles with spins having opposite signs can pair up to eliminate the observable manifestations of spin

4 Phisics… Max Plank a particle can undergo a transition between the two energy states by the absorption of a photon h The energy E of a photon is related to its frequency υ called resoanance frequency, by Plank´s constant h. E= h E= υ h

5 Julio 22, 2005 Imagenología por Resonancia Magnética Properties of Spin A particle with a net spin in a magnetic field B, can absorb a photon of a frequency. A particle with a net spin in a magnetic field B, can absorb a photon of a frequency υ. The frequency depends on the gyromagnetic ratio γ of the particle The frequency υ depends on the gyromagnetic ratio γ of the particle = γB υ = γB γ H = MHz/T
