Abstract
Temperature measurement is possible by at least five magnetic resonance ima ging (MRI)-methods. All techniques deliver relative units. All techniques h ave turned out to be useful in dead material. All techniques are sensible t o all kinds of movements of or within the body and to measurements in diffe rent kinds of tissue. As measuring time is mostly some minutes, application in vivo is still problematic. The main problem for the thermal physiologis t is the sensibility of the techniques both to temperature and to perfusion . Great relevance for thermal physiology will turn out with further develop ment of MR-techniques. (C) 2001 Published by Elsevier Science Ltd.
