The quality of the MRI images depends on three NMR main parameters (the proton spin density, the nuclear spin-lattice relaxation time T1, and the spin-spin relaxation time T2), and the contrast agents (CAs), based on the different distribution of nuclear-spin density along the body, are able to improve the image contrast by increasing (locally) the nuclear relaxation rates [2].
