Part of the Basic Life Sciences book series (BLSC, volume 56)


The capability of NMR spectroscopy to study biological systems noninvasively was extended to whole animal applications by the introduction of the surface-coil receiver by Ackerman et al. (1980). While this first demonstration utilized a 31P-tuned receiver for the detection of phosphorus signals, the technique has been extended to other nuclides, including proton ( 1H) and fluorine (19F), and, in conjunction with proton-decoupling, carbon ( 13C).
