The Bloch Simulator is 3D graphical software for visualising spin physics and MRI techniques. It provides demonstrations and exploration of otherwise abstract concepts involved in MRI. It is useful for students and teachers alike and is available online at no cost. Phenomena such as precession, resonance, excitation, inhomogeneity and relaxation can be demonstrated. Likewise, rotating frames, weightings, spoilers, spin-echoes, simulated echoes and more can be explored. Finally, MR imaging concepts can be demonstrated, e.g., how the similarity between induced phase roll patterns and the structures of the imaged object is reflected in the MR signal.
