Is This the Highest Resolution MRI Scan of the Human Brain Ever?

This video depicts an MRI of an entire human brain, donated by a 58-year-old female who died as a result of non-neurological causes, at 100 micron resolution. The multidisciplinary team at Massachusetts General Hospital released the video on May 31, 2019 and claim it is the highest resolution imaging of an entire brain to date. The research team is hopeful that this new level of detail in MRI scans will lead to benefits in investigational, educational, and clinical applications in healthcare.
