MeSH Heading
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Tree Number(s)
E01.370.350.825.500
Unique ID
D008279
RDF Unique Identifier

Annotation
general or unspecified; prefer specifics; do not confuse with MAGNETIC RESONANCE SPECTROSCOPY: check text
Scope Note
Non-invasive method of demonstrating internal anatomy based on the principle that atomic nuclei in a strong magnetic field absorb pulses of radiofrequency energy and emit them as radiowaves which can be reconstructed into computerized images. The concept includes proton spin tomographic techniques.
