With a view to applying the method to problems in medicine and biology, an NMR imaging system capable of examining objects to order 10 cm in size has been constructed and first examples of images obtained with this instrument are presented. Features of this system are its successful exploitation of a fast multisensitive point method, the use of a steady-state free precession NMR mode of operation to optimize sensitivity and the generation of truly three-dimensional images.
