With simple procedures, today, it is feasible to elucidate complex structures of organic molecules. An even greater importance of multidimensional NMR has reached in molecular biology. But the greatest value of NMR is the possibility of structural macroscopic studies of living tissue. MRI has become a strong competitor to X-ray methods in clinical medicine.
