Brief Summary:
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) performance depends on equipment performance, equipment maintenance and relevance of MRI sequence used. To optimize MRI performance, it's necessary to develop, optimize, test and validate new acquisition sequences for enhanced diagnosis and therapy monitoring. These new sequences will allow better spatial resolution and specificity while reducing acquisition time.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Magnetic Resonance Imaging Sequences Device: MRI acquisitions Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The purpose of the present study is to test and optimize, on healthy subjects, specific MRI acquisition sequences firstly developed in a preclinical phase on phantoms (inert objects containing solutions or gels) and animal (Pig, sheep). This study will allow the investigators to define practical acquisition parameters that will allow reproducible results and precise definition of clinically relevant examination protocols for each new developed sequence.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: MRI
MRI exam performed on 200 healthy volunteers
Device: MRI acquisitions
Procedure of the study is an MRI exam without any injection or invasive procedure, that will be performed on the Siemens Magnetom Aera imager of Liryc institute (L'Institut de RYthmologie et modélisation Cardiaque) (Xavier Arnozan site - Bordeaux)




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Image quality [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]
  2. Signal to noise ratio [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]
  3. Contrasts between structurally different regions [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]
    The values of the signal intensities will be measured in adjacent structures of interest. The difference between these values divided by the noise will be calculated to quantify the contrast-to-noise ratio between these structures. The higher this value is, the better is the sequence in its ability to differentiate these structures from one another.

  4. Total acquisition time [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]
  5. Qualitative interpretation of image quality to respiratory and cardiac motions [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]
    In the presence of improper compensation for cardiac and / or respiratory movements, the images may appear blurred. The qualitative interpretation of image quality will be performed by visual image analysis.

  6. Quantitative interpretation of image quality to respiratory and cardiac motions [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]
    In the presence of improper compensation for cardiac and / or respiratory movements, the images may appear blurred. The quantitative interpretation of image quality will be performed by a measurement of sharpness of contours between adjacent structures of interest.
