Application of MR imaging is very limited in imaging sensitivity and contrast in regards to the detection of brain tumor at an early stage because of tiny variations between healthy tissue and early-stage tumor. The radiation damping effect provides insight about the nonlinear spin evolution. Taking advantage of nonlinear spin evolution, we confirmed theoretically and experimentally that MR imaging provides a more stable and significant contrast in comparison to conventional methods.
