Hydrogen atoms and radio pulses

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) relies on the spin of hydrogen atoms in the body being affected by a strong magnetic field. It uses strong magnets and pulses of radio waves to manipulate the natural magnetic properties in the body and generate an image.

This is different from our November 2013 survey, so even if you took part in that survey, we would appreciate you taking this survey as well.
