A rapid ultra high resolution ex vivo MRI imaging method was evaluated to visualize rat skin structure. The main objectives were: 1.qualitative assessment of viable epidermis, hair, oil and fat-rich skin features by multi-contrast approach; 2.achievement of spatial resolution up to 15 microns; 3. comparison of skin histology with MRI skin features obtained by 21 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) imager.
