Medical imaging has shown that, during early development, the brain undergoes more changes in size, shape and appearance than at any other time in life. A better understanding of brain development requires a spatio-temporal atlas that characterizes the dynamic changes during this period. In this paper we present an approach for constructing a 4D atlas of the developing brain, between 28 and 44 weeks post-menstrual age at time of scan, using T1 and T2 weighted MR images from 204 premature… Expand

TLDR
A spatio-temporal atlas of diffusion MRI for neonatal brains between 32 to 42 weeks postmenstrual age (PMA) is developed based on Fibre Orientation Distribution (FOD) reconstruction of the diffusion data. Expand
A Multi-channel 4D Probabilistic Atlas of the Developing Brain: Application to Fetuses and Neonates
TLDR
This paper presents an approach for constructing a 4D multi-channel atlas of the developing preterm brain which incorporates multiple modalities and tissue segmentations and shows to improve atlas-based automatic segmentation comparing to probabilistic atlases generated using affine registration.

A normative spatiotemporal MRI atlas of the fetal brain for automatic segmentation and analysis of early brain growth
TLDR
An algorithm for construction of an unbiased four-dimensional atlas of the developing fetal brain is developed by integrating symmetric diffeomorphic deformable registration in space with kernel regression in age and is available online as a reference for anatomy and for registration and segmentation.

This paper suggests a new approach for enhancing the normalization of CT scans to a reference space, and explains the steps towards creating MR and CT atlases, and demonstrates the created multimodal atlas. Expand
Construction of a 4D Brain Atlas and Growth Model Using Diffeomorphic Registration
TLDR
An atlas which describes the dynamics of early development through mean images at weekly intervals and a continuous spatio-temporal deformation is constructed and the evolution of brain volumes calculated on preterm neonates is in agreement with recently published findings based on measures of cortical folding of fetuses at the equivalent age range. Expand
Spatial–temporal atlas of human fetal brain development during the early second trimester
TLDR
Findings indicate that growth of the subplate zone is especially striking and is the main cause for the lamination pattern changes, and changes in the cortex around Sylvian fissure demonstrate that cortical growth may be one of the mechanisms for gyration. Expand

TLDR
The method is based on the previously published concept of unbiased atlas building, calculating the nonlinear average image of a population of images by simultaneous nonlinear deformable registration and the resulting center average image is sharp and encodes the average structure and geometry of the whole population.
