OBJECT: To evaluate the feasibility of mouse spinal cord MR imaging using echo-planar imaging (EPI). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Optimized multi-shot spin-echo-EPI sequences were compared to conventional spin-echo (c-SE) at 11.75 T and used for high-spatially resolved acquisitions and relaxation-time measurements. RESULTS: Good quality images were obtained, with clear delineation of gray and white matter. Acquisition-time gain factor was up to 6 (vs. c-SE) and resolution up to 74 x 94 microm2 was achieved. T1 and T2 relaxation times were reliably measured. CONCLUSION: High-temporally and spatially resolved mouse spinal cord EPI imaging is feasible. This technique should greatly benefit to long acquisition-time experiments (diffusion imaging) and imaging of rapidly-evolving pathologies.
