Abstract

Theoretical principles of image formation in magnetic resonance tomography are outlined in the paper, with special emphasis on the phenomena of spin of atomic nuclei, precession of protons in the magnetic field, and magnetic resonance itself. Principles underlying MR imaging with various temporal parameters in sequences T1, T2 and PD are presented.
