Abstract. Fetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a rapidly growing field of research for its potential to study brain development in utero. However, in contrast to adult studies automatic brain extraction and orientation is not yet solved, but remains challenging in wide field of view raw fetal MRI volumes. This has limited research to small scale(More)
Prenatal neuroimaging requires reference models that reflect the normal spectrum of fetal brain development, and summarize observations from a representative sample of individuals. Collecting a sufficiently large data set of manually annotated data to construct a comprehensive in vivo atlas of rapidly developing structures is challenging but necessary for(More)
Fetal Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in early phases of the cerebral development during gestation offers insights into the emergence of brain structures, their characteristics and variability across the population. To collect substantial bodies of observations automatic analysis of these data is necessary. However, automatic segmentation proofs(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging has become an important noninvasive technique to gain insight into fetal brain development. Its capabilities go beyond ultrasound when diagnosing high-risk pregnancies. To summarize observations across a population in magnetic resonance imaging studies, reference systems such as atlases that establish correspondences across a(More)
