    Abstract

    Accurate identification of spinal cord segments in relation to vertebral landmarks is essential to surgery aimed at experimental spinal cord injury. We have analyzed a complete series of high-resolution magnetic resonance (MR) images from the mouse spine in order to delineate the boundaries of spinal cord segments in relation to vertebral landmarks. The resulting atlas can be used to plan experimental approaches that require the accurate identification of a target spinal cord segment. © 2012.
