Its A Living
What are countries famous for making? For Japan, the answer might be electronic goods. For Germany, automobiles. For France, perhaps a Louis Vuitton bag. But what about Britain? Here, Evan Davis sets himself the task of finding out. Offering a fascinating look at our manufacturing industries and revealing the various companies that might not be household names, but are very much world leaders in their fields, he shows how we have learnt to specialise in high end and niche areas that are the envy of the world.
Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is widely used a a non-invasive means of obtaining clinical images and of studing tissue metabolism in vivo. In this book, the principles of NMR are introduced, a description is given of the ways in which NMR can be used to study living systems, and the scope and limitations of the technique are discussed. While the focus is on applications in man (in particular on physiological and biochemical studies), descriptions are also given of the ways in which basic NMR research studies can complement and aid interpretation of clinical findings.
