AMSM has been founded in 1991 to support research on medical and biomedical Magnetic Resonance (MR) at the Medical Faculty.

MR is a non-invasive method to study the human or animal body in vivo. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) displays anatomy in an unsurpassed fashion and is a well established diagnostic tool in medical diagnosis. Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) evaluates the human metabolism in clinics and research.
