A few diagrams depicting various pulse sequences. 

Collection of MRI physics related diagrams

Modality: Diagram

Diagrams depicting the effect of material (grey) on magnetic field (blue lines), depending on the materials properties: ferromagnetism, diamagnetism, paramagnetism, and superparamagnetism.

Modality: Diagram
Flow-related enhancement is an enhancement of flowing blood seen on gradient echo pulse sequences as well as in entry slices of multslice spin echo sequences. 
Modality: Diagram
RF coils are the "antenna" of the MRI system that broadcasts the RF signal to the patient and/or receives the return signal. RF coils can be receive-only, in which case the body coil is used as a transmitter; or transmit and receive (transceiver).
