Introduction to MR Physics Part 5b

Part 5b 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 5a , Part 5c 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)
