Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) is often described by chemists as one of the most useful pieces of equipment to have in the lab but can also be used in medicine. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses the same technology as NMR. MRI has proven to be monumental in the locating of tumors, lesions, and edemas. Current research with MRI seeks to provide researchers a noninvasive way to follow cellular metabolism and to locate tumors.
