'Spatially Resolved Magnetic Resonance' provides comprehensive and exhaustive coverage of the state of the art in magnetic resonance imaging. Focusing on nonclinical applications, readers learn about the possibilities, limitations and strengths of magnetic resonance methods in a broad range of fields, from materials science, medicine, biology, to geology and ecology. New and innovative applications such as polymer and elastomer characterization, analysis of construction materials and material flow, biomedical imaging and plant studies document the significant advances being made in this field. Newcomers will find the tutorial chapter an excellent guide to the fundamentals of magnetic resonance.
Based on lectures presented at the Fourth International Conference on Magnetic Resonance Microscopy held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in October 1997, all chapters have been carefully edited and reviewed. Chemists, physicists, materials scientists, geologists, and life-scientists who wish to assess the potential of magnetic resonance imaging will find this reference a stimulating and exhaustive resource.
'This volume documents a long stride toward maturation and integration, along with the ever increasing power and subtlety of techniques and analyses, and should inspire developers and users in all areas, from medicine to geology.'
