    I hope you can help me with my Physics question. The topic is MRI.
    It is about how proton density and tissue type can influence the signal intensity in the MRI. My teacher has asked me
    1. why the same proton density of blood can still produce a better MRI picture than water that also has the same proton density
    2. what determines proton density?

    Thank you
