Within the last twenty years Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has become established as a major 3D imaging tool in hospitals. Each examination is essentially a complicated Physics experiment involving careful manipulation of the spins of the protons in hydrogen atoms of the subject. The technique is excellent for anatomical imaging but also has many other applications which are still being discovered by physicists working in the field. I will discuss the basic physics and applications, and also a current research project which involves combining MRI with simultaneous positron emission (PET) imaging.
