Small-bore animal scanners or spectroscopy systems have often been used for the investigation of small post-mortem human brain samples. These studies use the high field strengths and strong gradients, but are inherently limited to very small sample sizes. In this abstract, we discuss the acquisition of very high resolution anatomical images (100μm isotropic) of a full occipital sample as large as 80x80x80 mm3, using a customised RF receive coil-array in a large-bore 9.4 T human scanner.
