Trying to understand the physics of MRI

Hi! Just out of personal interest, I am trying to understand how MRI works and there are a number of things that I have not yet understood. In one of the books I am reading it says: “As can be shown, the magnetic RF field induces transitions between the two permitted spin states (precession cones) u...

Physics in MRI research

Hi!

I have a Master of Science degree in Engineering Physics, have worked a few years and I am now interested in doing a PhD related to medical imaging.

How deep into the physics does university and industrial research in MRI usually go?

Thank you very much in advance!

Best regards,
/Chris
