Potential applications of three-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) imaging to noninvasive temperature monitoring as well as tissue heating are discussed. Although heat delivery using conventional NMR imaging is negligible, the physical basis for heat transfer is reviewed and the potential for increase is shown to depend on both the static magnetic field and the longitudinal relaxation time (T1)
