Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the potential of an experimental coil using a whole-body MR unit to delineate pathological changes within formalin-fixed human brain stems. Material, Methods, and Results: The MR images of 9 brain stems were compared with gross anatomy and corresponding histological sections. The resolution of the images was high enough to depict areas of clinically relevant pathological alterations.
