  • Association of Managers of Magnetic Resonance Laboratories The AMMRL is a group of individuals who are responsible for the operation of laboratories and instrumentation for magnetic resonance spectroscopy, including nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Our main goal is to assist one another in providing the best resources possible for research and applications using magnetic resonance spectroscopy, through exchange of information and experience. AMMRL has no formal organizational structure, providing instead an informal means for like-minded individuals to find one other and explore issues of mutual importance. A steering committee is responsible for the operation of the group. Our primary means of interaction are by email, and in a session held at the annual Experimental NMR Conference (ENC). A directory listing of members, including information about instruments owned, also contributes to maintaining this community.
  • Basics of MRI An online tutorial of the basics of MRI by Joseph P. Hornak, Ph.D.
  • BioMagResBank BMRB’s mission is to collect, archive, and disseminate (worldwide in the public domain) the important quantitative data derived from NMR spectroscopic investigations of biological macromolecules. Relevant data are deposited by the scientists who generate them, and in consultation with these scientists, BMRB resolves any problems with the self-consistency and completeness of the deposition. In collaboration with the Protein Data Bank, BMRB provides links between the spectral data and associated atomic coordinates. BMRB works with the user community to develop formats for these data that can be parsed by computers and used for knowledge generation, alone and in conjunction with information from other databases. BMRB’s goal is to empower scientists in their analysis of the structure, dynamics, and chemistry of biological systems and to support further development of the field of biomolecular NMR spectroscopy. Through international collaborations and mirror sites, BMRB endeavors to involve the participation of a wider group of scientists and to enhance its services worldwide.

  • Introduction to MRI Welcome to the exciting world of MRI! This is a tutorial that will cover the basic aspects of MRI.
  • Magnetic Resonance Centre, University of Nottingham This group develops techniques and hardware for MRI and Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS), particularly echo-planar imaging (EPI). It also works on the applications of these techniques, particularly in neuroscience. Most of the group are based in the Sir Peter Mansfield Magnetic Resonance Centre (SPMMRC), which is an annex of the main Physics building.
  • MR Angiography The protocols presented here are our current practice. They were developed on the basis of 10 years experience with thousands of body MR Angiography cases. We are constantly refining and updating these protocols as magnets are updated and new pulse sequences become available. We hope that you find these protocols to be useful. We would appreciate hearing about any problems, insights or suggestions that you may have.
  • MRI Contrast Agents Although MRI was initially hoped to provide a means of making definitive diagnoses non invasively, we have found that the addition of contrast agents in many cases improves our sensitivity and/or specificity. Paul Lauterbur and his associated were the first to demonstrate the feasibility of using paramagnetic contrast agents to improve tissue discrimination in MRI. I have somewhat arbitrarily grouped this topic into the subjects listed below. If you would like to review the differences between diamagnetic, paramagnetic, super paramagnetic, and ferromagnetic; look over the magnetism section.
