Abstract

In recent years the use of NMR for clinical purposes has been increasing. Magnetic resonance imaging has great diagnostic potential, despite the many problems and drawbacks involved in its practice (1). More controversial is the possibility to exploit NMR spectroscopy as a diagnostic tool in clinical practice. Its applications seem to be restricted to the study of phosphorus containing metabolites (2), in particular to muscle energetics and to the viability of organs. However, some very recent research, based on 1H (3) and 13C (4,5) NMR, opens new fields in the applications of in vivo NMR to clinical problems.
