Pts having an MRI
This is a technology assessment protocol. The study is designed to assess the utility of the technology using a limited number of participants.
Other: MRI scanner with sequence
The intervention for the patients is the additional 10 minutes in the MRI scanner with sequence. The intervention for the volunteers is the scan, which will take a total of 30 minutes. The volunteers will have two more additional studies at 1-2 week intervals. Both the patients and volunteers will also need to fill out a questionnaire.
- feasibility of high resolution diffusion-weighted imaging [ Time Frame: 2 years ]using a new DWI pulse sequence from the manufacturer (General Electric Medical Systems (Milwaukee, WI)) for the assessment of head and neck cancer cancer and prostate cancer.
