Fischer-344 rat brain template and anatomical atlas
We developed a high-resolution 3D MRI atlas of the adult Fischer 344 rat brain. The atlas has an isotropic spatial resolution of 60 micrometers, and contains 98 individually delineated structures and sub-structures. It was developed using Pydpiper image registration software to create an average brain of 41 four-month old male and female Fischer 344 rats.
The final template and atlas are available in both Nifti format and Minc format. A label hirearchy file is also provided for use with RMINC and MAGeT brain processing.
