  Purpose

The objective of this pilot study is to develop and evaluate a whole body MRI technique for detecting cancer metastases. The whole body MRI will include T1-weighted and T2-weighted phase-sensitive MR imaging as well as diffusion weighted imaging of the whole body in multiple patient table stations.
