The SPL/NAC Brain Atlas is an MRI-derived atlas of a normal volunteer developed through a collaboration between the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital. It consists of more than three hundred structures and represents more than two decades of development.
Data of a healthy 42 year old male volunteer was acquired at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging on a Siemens 3T scanner, using a multi-array head coil, in a healthy, 42 year old male. Labels were generated using Freesurfer automatic parcellation followed by manual segmentation of many structures.
The data set consists of :
Other features include:
SPL: Surgical Planning Laboratory, Department of Radiology, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.
MGH: Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, Department of Radiology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.
CMA: Center for Morphometric Analysis, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Charlestown, MA, USA.
