Abstract

The major clinical imaging modalities, with the exception of ultrasound, have employed ionizing radiation. NMR techniques allow high-resolution tomographic and three-dimensional imaging without such radiation. In addition, NMR may allow the characterization of tissue pathology and assessment of metabolic function noninvasively. While the diagnostic role for NMR methods within cardiology has not yet been established, preliminary clinical and experimental data suggest that there are numerous applications in which NMR would provide unique or complementary information when compared to existing techniques.
