Under the influence of a pulsed magnetic field from a coil, the aligned nuclei can be made to undergo 'coherent precession,' where the direction of the nuclear magnetism circulates for a time around the main magnetic field direction.
Different MR-based techniques have been developed to utilize nuclear magnetism induced in tissue to generate images of internal structure.
