High resolution 3D myelin water imaging in excised rat spinal cord

Abstract

Introduction Myelin water imaging has been successfully used to assess myelin content in human and animal CNS tissue [1,2]. It has been shown that fractional amounts of water trapped between myelin sheaths – the so called myelin water fraction (MWF) [3] correlates well with the amount of myelin in a rat model of spinal cord injury (SCI) [2] and can… (More)
