New Discovery May Enhance MRI Scans, Lead to Portable MRI Machines
November 25, 2008
Researchers in Ohio and France have solved a longstanding scientific mystery involving magnetic resonance--the physical phenomenon that allows MRI instruments in modern hospitals to image tissues deep within the human body. Their discovery, a new mathematical algorithm, should lead to new MRI techniques with more informative and sharper images.
