How Does NMR Work?

Answer

NMR or nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy is actually the same thing as a MRI that is used by doctors. It was believed that the word nuclear might scare the patients so it was changed. A NMR uses radio waves to map out your body parts, and is not harmful. You can find more information here: http://pslc.ws/macrog/nmr.htm

An NMR, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy is the same as an MRI. The removal of the 'Nuclear' is just to ease minds against the thought of a 'nuclear' treatment. They basically work using a magnetic field created by a combined effort of Helium and Nitrogen. You can find more information here: http://www.pslc.ws/mactest/nmr.htm
