Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: pulse sequence software
The central aim of this study is to acquire a set of images and associated technical and clinical information to facilitate regulatory submission of the pulse sequences being studied by GEHC. Segment 1 allows to collect a minimum of 10 subjects then evaluate if additional scans/enrollment needed Segment 2 will allow an additional 90 subjects if data needed
Device: pulse sequences
Collect in vivo human data to demonstrate neurological Magnetic Resonance Imaging of subjects using a pulse sequence
Other Name: zero TE pulse sequences



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Head Images Successfully Collected [ Time Frame: 6-months ]
    Collect head human images and associated technical and clinical information to demonstrate neurological magnetic resonance imaging of subjects using short pulse sequence.
