Zebrafish is an important model in development and neuroscience research. However due to its extremely small size (4x2x1mm), ultra-high resolution MR diffusion images are required to obtain meaningful information. Here we present the white matter tracks of the zebrafish brain reconstructed using Track Density Imaging at 5-micron resolution and comparison with conventional high-resolution anatomical MRI.
