Diffusion MR imaging of the human spinal cord has become increasingly important in both clinical diagnostics, and research science.1 As MRI methods improve, there is a need to understand the limits of diffusion MRI in the human spinal cord. Here, we present a microscopic resolution diffusion MRI dataset of the entire postmortem human spinal cord, generated from a multi-segment acquisition, using an automated image-processing pipeline. These data provide unique insights for spinal cord research, future diagnostic imaging applications, and for postmortem pathologic evaluation of spinal cord specimens.
