Introduction to MR Physics Part 5a

Part 5a of a six part series covering the fundamentals of magnetic resonance imaging physics. In this section, Dr. Stafford applies the underlying physics to describe the basics of MR pulse sequences. Click here to view Part 5b or Part 1a.

Terms covered in Part 5:

  • NMR spectroscopy
  • Free Induction Decay (FID)
  • Adiabatic pulse
  • Spoiled gradient echo imaging
  • Balanced steady-state free precession (bSSFP)
  • Echo Planar Imaging (EPI)
  • Fast-spin Echo Imaging (FSE)
