Title: Method of enhancing an MRI signal

Abstract: A method and apparatus are provided for enhancing a signal quality from afirst atom of a pair of spin-spin coupled atoms, in a magnetic resonanceimaging system. The method includes the steps of exciting the first atomof the pair of spin-spin coupled atoms within the magnetic resonanceimaging system at a Larmor frequency of the first atom and exciting thesecond atom at the Larmor frequency of the second atom. The method furtherincludes the step of detecting a signal from the first atom.
