    yes i have done a few reports on it on how it works, how to prepare for it, the risks and benfits......its just i need to know what applications inside the mri can cause the intesity to reduce and how to increase it......

    i have mentioned stuff like the part that the mri is scanning can affect intensity as it could be asmall area or large....as well as i have added information such as the condition of the patient, but i have not included anything of the mri itself such as the coils that may affect the intensity, but how.....i just need any other application i will do the further information gathering myself.
