Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) provides excellent images of organs and is an essential diagnostic tool in the medical field. Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Imaging (EPRI) is becoming more widespread in the bio-medical field because of recent hardware advances. We present the first images obtained with a low field (35.7 mT) multimodal apparatus that combines pulsed EPRI and MRI. A detailed description of the hardware, pulse sequences and image reconstruction techniques are reported. Experiments show that the spatial resolution achievable with this apparatus is about 1 mm with the MRI section and ahout 7 mm with the EPFU section.

Abstract

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) provides excellent images of organs and is an essential diagnostic tool in the medical field. Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Imaging (EPRI) is becoming more widespread in the bio-medical field because of recent hardware advances. We present the first images obtained with a low field (35.7 mT) multimodal apparatus that combines pulsed EPRI and MRI. A detailed description of the hardware, pulse sequences and image reconstruction techniques are reported. Experiments show that the spatial resolution achievable with this apparatus is about 1 mm with the MRI section and ahout 7 mm with the EPFU section.
