There are four magnetic resonance properties of tissue that cause differences in the NMR signals used to create MR images: proton density, T1 relaxation time, T2 relaxation time and physical flow (movement through the image plane). Thus these properties of tissues become important in the diagnostic process as they provide the basis of the image contrast scale. Pathologic tissue changes will become visible in the MR image if the imaging procedure is adjusted to display the parameter that is most altered. It has, therefore, become important for us to understand the fundamental MR characteristics of tissues. A fundamental insight into the interaction of water molecules with macromolecular structures comprising tissue is provided.
