Diagnostic Test - Custom Designed Spine Coil

During the participant's MR scan, the custom spine coil will be placed between the participant and the immobilization mold. image parameters will be optimized for spine anatomy for the pulse sequences which are standard for MR imaging.

Diagnostic Test - FDA approved spine coil

During the participant's MR scan, the FDA spine coil will be placed between the participant and the immobilization mold. image parameters will be optimized for spine anatomy for the pulse sequences which are standard for MR imaging. Volunteers may receive up to 3 scans to allow for comparisons of changes to the calibration files as we continue to test the coil and improve its performance.
