Nuclear magnetic resonance utilizes imaging that produces a representation of the lipoproteins found in a simple blood sample. An easy way to understand the concept of NMR technology is to compare it to the ringing of bells. When a group of bells is struck, the frequency of the sound separates the ring of one bell from another while the loudness of the sound reflects the number of bells struck. By recording the "ringing" of all of the lipoproteins in a blood sample, it is possible to identify the number and type of lipoprotein particles present.
