Related to Larmor frequency: NMR
in magnetic resonance, the precessional frequency, n0, of magnetic nuclei in a plane perpendicular to the direction of the external magnetic field; v0 = γB0/2π, where B0 is the magnetic field strength and γ is the magnetogyric ratio.

Larmor frequencyAn MRI term for the frequency at which magnetic resonance in a nucleus can be excited and detected, which varies directly with the magnetic field strength, and is normally in the radio frequency (RF) range.

In magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the frequency of the radio wave that will resonate with all the protons in the nucleus of a given element. The Larmor radio frequency induces the magnetic resonance used to create MRI images.
