MRI’s are familiar and trusted, right?

Did you know that MRI stands for MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING? This technology–which is used intensively in all sorts of medical diagnostics–is the standard in medicine today.

One can’t skimp when it comes to identifying a torn ligament– a very small detail on an MRI image that is made possible by magnets. And this type of detail rests on the intensity of the magnets inside the MRI machinery.  MRI’s use a powerful magnetic field to align the nuclear magnetization of (usually) hydrogen atoms in water in the body. Radio frequency (RF) fields are used to systematically alter the alignment of this magnetization. This causes the hydrogen nuclei to produce a rotating magnetic field detectable by the scanner. This signal can be manipulated by additional magnetic fields to build up enough information to construct an image of the body.

In a nutshell, MRI’s use the same element as Omni’s Water Systems in its’ technology: MAGNETS.

Omni’s proprietary technology – HDMR – HYDRODYNAMIC MAGNETIC RESONANCE – has also been proven and is successfully used in agricultural fields around the world today.
