The study and the implementation of three techniques for the selection of multislice, aiming the optimization of the NMR tomography is presented. The first technique uses the simultaneous excitation of multiple slices, being each plane encoded with a pre determined phase for a latter decodification of the information by the linear combination of n experiments. The second one makes use of the multislice simultaneous excitation, like the first one, but the slices are acquired in the presence of an oblique reading gradient, which provides us the multi slices signal without any further computer processing. The third technique uses frequency multiplexed excitation, that is, different slices are successively excited during the repetition time of an acquisition, making possible multislice acquisition at the same time of a single slice. The construction and the use of a phantom for the equipment characterization are discussed too. Many technical aspects necessary for an improvement of the tomography performance, like reception circuits and resonators, are discussed. A brief introduction to the gradient modulated adiabatic excitation (GMAX) technique and the first results ever obtained with it, using surface coils, is presented. (author).
