The use organic and mixed solvents for nuclear magnetic resonance microscopy of fixed tissue is proposed as a means for improving image infor- mation content. NMR properties of some standard solvents (methanol, acetone or DMSO) and solvents in use for tissue processing in pathology (xylenes, paraffin, "Clearify") have been measured, reviewed and analyzed. It was found that DMSO and paraffin are very useful solvents that provide images of better quality than those obtained in water (neutralized… Expand

Influence of water based embedding media composition on the relaxation properties of fixed tissue.
It is shown that the major source of T2 variability is chemical exchange between protons from EM hydroxyls and water, mediated by the presence of phosphate ions, which increases with temperature, formaldehyde concentration in EM and phosphate concentration inEM. Expand
MR microscopy of formalin fixed paraffin embedded histology specimens
To obtain MR images and enable comparison of magnetic resonance microscopy (MRM) and histology studies, it is proposed to image FFPE tissue at elevated temperature. Expand
Three‐dimensional NMR microscopy of zebrafish specimens
An approach to perform segmentation of the organs in order to study morphological changes associated with mutations is highlighted and development of NMR methodology for high contrast and high resolution serial imaging and automated analysis of morphology of various zebrafish mutants is developed.
