paramagnetic

 [par″ah-mag-net´ik]
being attracted by a magnet and assuming a position parallel to that of a magnetic force, but not becoming permanently magnetized.

par·a·mag·net·ic

(par'ă-mag-net'ik),
Having the property of paramagnetism; in magnetic resonance imaging, contrast media are chosen for their paramagnetic property, which shortens relaxation time.

paramagnetic

[pār′amagnet′ik]
being attracted by a magnet and assuming a position parallel to that of a magnetic force, but not becoming permanently magnetized.

paramagnetic

(par″ă-mag-net′ik) [ para- + magnetic]
Pert. to a substance that is attracted by the poles of a magnet and becomes parallel to the lines of magnetic force. Paramagnetic contrast agents (usually incorporating gadolinium) are used in magnetic resonance imaging to help identify blood vessels and different tissue types.
