A R T I C L E I N F O A B S T R A C T Small animal modeling is an exciting research field where human pathogenic frameworks can be replicated in a controlled environment. Accurate Imaging is in high demand when modeling abnormalities and, magnetic resonance imaging plays a vital role due to its demonstrated lowest intrusion when compared with other imaging methods. However, the required high-resolution yields low-quality images and often, critical events are masked. In this manuscript, we
