Multi-dimensional magnetic resonance imaging in a stray magnetic field
Stray field imaging has been extensively utilized in the last 10 wars to perform very high resolution imaging of samples in a single dimension using the massive field gradient present in the fringe of a superconducting magnet. By spinning the sample around the magic-angle, the stray field gradient is successively reoriented along three orthogonal directions in the sample reference frame, allowing the acquisition of a full three-dimensional Fourier image, thereby providing the possibility to perform multi-dimensional very high-resolution imaging with standard nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy equipment. Here, we show multi-dimensional images demonstrating the feasibility of this technique. (C) 2004 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
