Biomedical imaging: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

Ichio AOKI1

MRI is a 3D bioimaging method used for both medical and biological research and it uses the same principle as nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). In addition to hardware development, methodological improvements such as pulse sequence development, analytical methods including data processing, and the development of contrast agents have grown continuously for over 25 years and have helped achieve a wide range of applications. In this paper, we outline the basic knowledge of MRI and its applications.
