In order to obtain high resolution images of fixed excised rat spinal cords we have developed a technique using a 6-mm bore, two-turn saddle coil, with a usable imaging length of approximately 4 cm. MR imaging is performed on a prototype 31-cm bore, 1.9-T system with a 1.5-mm section thickness and 7.6-mm field of view.
