Abstract

Earlier nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) techniques have provided means for producing images of static objects. This disclosure describes an algorithm for imaging motion using standard NMR apparatus and a microprocessor to perform computations. Medical applications include, for example, observation of the motion of specific bits of tissue within the heart.
