MRI on composites

I have been tasked to find an article or any information regarding Magnetic Resonance Imagery on composites, specifically focused on defect measurement. I have been trawling through google results for a while and cant seem to find anything relevant. If anyone out there can help or even give me a bit of advice it would really be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Chris Boyd

Chris,
Is this a misunderstanding of terminology?
There are several "RESONANCE" applications within Composite inspection, but I have not come across MRI as a technique on composites. Could however be some applications there, so I would be interested if there are.

I think QNET, GmbH has One Side Access Magnetic Resonance Method Instrument for attenuating materials. Not specifically for Composites. Check up with them. www.qnet.com.

Thanks to Godfrey andSimon for your help. It sounds like relatively new technology and I'm only new to the game myself. I think that they're pulling the plug on it anyway.
Thank you for your help again.
Chris.

Re: MRI on composites
A few years ago, the University of New Brunswick (Canada) did some work using real MRI equipment on composite aircraft structure, go the this URL
http://www.unb.ca/fredericton/science/physics/mri/

And scroll down to year 2005. I do not know if this is still being funded.

Dave.
