Abstract

Certain fluorocarbons, having high oxygen-carrying capacity, can be used as substitutes for blood in living animals. NMR signals can be obtained from the fluorine which are strong enough to image the vascular system. The various technical problems encountered in this imaging, including the effects of blood flow, are discussed.
