An extension of the solid-state imaging technique based on magic angle in the rotating frame (MARF) narrowing by the indirect detection method is presented. It allows one to introduce, in the resulting image, the dependence on the spin-spin relaxation time characteristic of the "wideline" behavior of the system, although the method is based on a line-narrowing technique. In particular, this dependence is observed in a very easy way, by simple postprocessing of the acquired data set, without modification of the basic pulse sequence of the method. Transverse relaxation time-contrasted projections obtained on intermediate bandwidth polycrystalline solids and elastomers are presented. A further consequence of the procedure allows obtaining images of only the large bandwidth components in heterogeneous systems with coexisting states of different molecular mobility.
