In this essay the author makes predictions on how the future of MRI will develop for the short term, the intermediate term, and the long term; these periods of time are defined as the present to the next 3 years, 3 to 5 years, and beyond 5 years, respectively. For each time period, general scientific trends and specific applications are presented. Despite about 15 years of extensive scientific research and significant application to clinical imaging, there continue to be many opportunities for additional technical development in MRI as its role in clinical use and the extent of its scientific significance expand.
