A set of five histological coils were designed and tested to accommodate standard off-the-shelf mounting commonly used for tissue examination under a microscope with sizes enabling a wide range of tissue on either coveslips or glass slides. We compared the sensitivity of all the coil sizes designed in-house with a 7T system acquired during overnight scans (8-hours). Our results show that samples with sizes as small as 10x10mm and as thin as 5um thick can be imaged with excellent anatomical details
