MR microscopy can provide high-resolution measurement of MR properties of biological and artificial tissues that can be compared with optical imaging. In such experiments, low signal-to-noise ratios (SNR) of a common clinical RF coil with a low filling factor will be a challenge. So, we propose a novel, multi-turn histology coil for imaging microscopic tissue histology slices with substantially higher SNR in clinical MRI scanner compared to the previous design for microscopy tissue imaging.
