Towards NMR Spectroscopy In Vivo: II. Relationship between NMR Parameters and Histology
The future of NMR as an in vivo diagnostic tool, both for imaging techniques and for spectroscopic determinations, requires as a preliminary step a precise tissue characterization. In practice, sound relationships should be established between the histology of a tissue and the relevant NMR parameters.
