The message of my presentation is that permanent magnet engineering together with ideas from solid-state NMR can give place to innovation in medical Magnetic Resonance. We demonstrate a new strategy to develop portable MRI magnets and show the first example of a high uniformity one-sided system. We also use spinning micro-detectors as a means to achieve high resolution microscopy by magic angle sample spinning in the stray field of a magnet. Ideas on magic angle field spinning will be the common denominator for these projects. Ideas and preliminary instrumentation will be presented.
