This learning activity teaches the physics of magnetic resonance imaging and NMR. It begins with instruction on the basics of magnetism, electromagnetism, and resonance and applies these topics to the operation of magnetic resonance equipment for medical diagnostics. This activity includes both hands-on exercises and computer visualizations. Information on the construction of the measurement apparatus is available in the instructor resources for the Modern Miracle Medical Machines web site.

This one of a growing set of activities developed by the Kansas State University Physics Education Research group on the physics of modern medicine.
