Nuclear magnetic resonance imaging with reduced sensitivity to motional effects

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #4616180.

The effects of motion in a given direction of particles being imaged in an NMR imaging system are substantially reduced by using gradients in the given direction produced by gradient pulse sequences which exhibit a zero value first moment relative to the point in time at which phase determination of the particles occurs. This point in time is generally taken at the time at which the longitudinal magnetization is translated to the transverse plane, as that is the phase reference for the NMR signals produced by the particles.
