Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) imaging [1] usually exploits the dependence of the resonance frequency (generally in the rf band) on the magnetic field strength to map spatial position onto a frequency spectrum. The magnetic field strength is given a known spatial dependence and the spins are uniformly excited with an rf field. The uniform rf field is generally produced inside a cylindrical rf coil.
