How sectioned? I recall a Leica ad for a freezing sledge microtome that
they showed sectioning a whole rhesus monkey, and the NIH has recently
produced atlases by freezing microtomy of whole people.

The "section" was trash. The technique was to section, clean the new block
face, photograph, section, ... etc. Would this work for you?
