Echo → Spin echo.
Echo planar imaging: a technique of planar imaging in which a complete planar image is obtained from one selective excitation pulse. The FID is observed while periodically switching a field gradient to generate a train of gradient echoes. The Fourier transform of the resulting echo train can be used to produce an image of the excited plane.
Echo train: a sequence of two or more echoes generated by the application of RF pulses or gradients.
Eddy currents: electric currents induced in a conductor by a changing magnetic field or by motion of the conductor through a magnetic field. One of the sources of concern about potential hazard to subjects in very high magnetic fields or rapidly varying gradient or main magnetic fields. Can be a practical problem in the cryostat of superconducting magnets, in particular for localized spectroscopy. Can be reduced by the use of shielded gradients.
Electron spin resonance → Magnetic resonance.
EPI → Echo planar imaging.
ESR → Magnetic resonance.
Even echo rephasing: even echoes in an echo train of spin echoes are compensated for the effects of flow.
Excitation: putting energy into the spin system; if a net transverse magnetization is produced, an NMR signal can be observed.
Excitation pulse: pulse used to excite the spin system.
