Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

MRI creates images from the resonance created in hydrogen atoms when they are polerized and an electromegntic pulse is used to knock them off axis. This section includes MR analysis software, MRI scanners, gadolinium contrast agents, and related magnetic resonance accessories.
