The basic principles of 2D MR imaging are demonstrated with two methods relying on two different gradient techniques. Experiments are executed with a MRT training device giving the opportunity to investigate some small probes in the sample chamber. Device control is done with the provided software. Investigations comprise the generation of a two-dimensional cross-section image via the spin echo technique, i.e. a spin echo signal is investigated while simultaneously superimposed with a magnetic field gradient, and the generation of a two-dimensional cross-section image via the gradient echo technique, i.e. a particular gradient echo signal is investigated. The latter technique is closely linked to the FLASH (Fast Low Angle Shot) which is an ultrafast technique in MR imaging.
