ICBM 152 extended nonlinear atlases (2020)

MNI ICBM152 Extended Symmetric 2020 Following the widespread use of the MNI-ICBM152 2009 templates, we created a template based on the same cohort of subjects with extended coverage in Z direction: additional 55mm were added to cover bottom part of the head. Also, non-linear registration was performed without the use of the brain mask, resulting in a sharp average everywhere. We hope that these templates will be useful for the intervention planning, where sharp rendering of the tissue outside of the brain is important. Note that since non-linear registration was performed without the mask, the resulting average does not have exactly the same shape as original 2009 version. We are providing a non-linear transformation file allowing to map anatomical location between these two atlases (symmetric version only). Two versions are available – symmetric and asymmetric (natural).
