Measuring anatomical structures in the olfactory bulb may be useful in studying neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Preliminary magnetic resonance microscopy images of the olfactory bulb and tract have been obtained at high resolution (19-25 μm isotropic) and shown to have features that correlate well with immunohistochemical staining.
