Short summary
For the first time, a three-dimensional map of the distribution of water in a test sample has been obtained from the random radio signal (spin noise) emitted spontaneously by hydrogen nuclei in a magnetic field with varying field gradients. A special variant of a projection–reconstruction algorithm has been developed for noise data, which allows one to adjust the image quality between high resolution/low contrast and low resolution/high contrast from the same previously recorded spin noise data.
