We made an MR-compatible brain slice holder that ensures that the images have the same location and orientation as the subsequent histologic sections. This device encloses the unfixed tissues, thus reducing the danger of exposure to pathogens. MR imaging time is saved by scanning selected slices rather than the whole brain; this technique is especially useful when brain sections at varying angles, rather than parallel slices, are taken.
