Abstract : Materials are imaged by exciting only one volume of interest (VOI) at a time while leaving the other undisturbed. By switching the irradiation frequency and probe tuning to the next VOI, the time delay between acquisitions of different VOI's may be essentially eliminated. The present invention may be implemented using a new coil design which is also useful for microscale planar imaging.
