Magnetic resonance microscopy is receiving increased attention as more researchers in the biological sciences are turning to non-invasive imaging to characterize development, perturbations, phenotypes and pathologies in model organisms ranging from amphibian embryos to adult rodents and even plants. The limits of spatial resolution are being explored as hardware improvements address the need for increased sensitivity. Recent developments include in vivo cell tracking, restricted diffusion imaging, functional magnetic resonance microscopy and three-dimensional mouse atlases. Important applications are also being developed outside biology in the fields of fluid mechanics, geology and chemistry.
