Due to the small size of the cynomolgus brain, imaging the fine structures in the brain is a challenging task. In this study, a sample preparation method is suggested for imaging the ex-vivo cynomolgus monkey brain with sub-millimeter resolution in 7T MRI. Using the proposed method, we acquired 150 um isotropic resolution MR images for whole brain, and the fine structures in the cynomolgus monkey brain was observed.
