A 3D Cross-Modality Atlas of the Human Brainstem for Scientists and Clinicians

In collaboration with MR experts Al Johnson (a Professor of Radiology, Physics, and Biomedical Engineering from Duke University) and Dr Mark Schira at the University of Wollongong, we are constructing an electronic atlas of the human brainstem. The atlas will combine in vivo magnetic resonance imaging, magnetic resonance microscopy, and histological images and be compatible with tablet computers to provide a convenient, yet powerful, reference for research and clinical use. We will also create an anatomical template to be used with most common MR-analysis packages (e.g., SPM, FSL, MINC, and BrainVoyager), to allow fast and effective alignment and warping of new data into the atlas framework.
