Brain Images of Normal Subjects (BRAINS) bank and atlases are being developed with >1000 normal subjects from across the lifespan, to be expanded in the future to include subjects with disease. The images have been collected in centres across Scotland and are in a range of magnetic resonance (MR) sequences, including T1, T2, T2*, and fluid attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR). When BRAINS is released these will be searchable by a wide range of metadata, e.g. blood pressure<140/90; age=85; MMSE>26.
BRAINS atlases are based on calculated distributions of brain structure rather than parametric estimates. These will be used to support image analysis research and clinical reporting of brain images.
