After a short introduction of the basics of MRI I will show how blood vessels in the brain modify the magnetic field and how this effect is used to image venous vessels and brain function. Magnetic properties are also relevant for perfusion MRI with contrast agents, which is the subject of the second part of the talk. We will see how that the measured perfusion properties have a remarkably strong dependency on the angle between anisotropic biological tissue and the main magnetic field.
