Spinal cord MRI templates allow reproducible and large scale atlas-based studies. However, current templates may have suboptimal resolutions (~0.5mm isotropic) to analyse high resolution data acquired at ultra-high field (e.g. 7T scanners). We generated a 3D human cervical cord template at 80µm isotropic resolution, from 13 ex vivo specimens, with a reference based on spinal levels. Further, the template was registered to the existing in vivo PAM50 template. Results showed consistency with histological studies in terms of grey matter morphology, and template generation achieved high accuracy (mean distance error: 0.10±0.01mm). The template and related scripts will be made publicly available.
