Human Fetal Brain Connectome: Structural Network Development from Middle Fetal Stage to Birth

Front Neurosci
PMCID: 5645529
PMID: 29081731
DOI: 10.3389/fnins.2017.00561
call_split See protocol

[…] . DWIs for each subject were first corrected for eddy current distortions and motion artifacts by registering all the DWIs to the b0 image using a 12-parameter (affine) linear image registration with automated image registration (AIR) algorithm (Woods et al., ). Six independent elements of the 3 × 3 diffusion tensor were determined in every voxel by multivariate least-square fitting of DWIs (Basse […]


Targeting butyrylcholinesterase for preclinical single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) imaging of Alzheimer's disease

PMCID: 5651425
PMID: 29067326
DOI: 10.1016/j.trci.2017.01.005

[…] the brain for regional analyses as described previously , . A six-parameter rigid body registration was performed between mouse MR and a standard brain from which the digital atlas was derived using Automated Image Registration 5.3.0 . Higher spatial transformations (warping) were applied to standard brain and corresponding warped MR atlas. MRI and warped MR atlas, along with SPECT/CT–fused image […]


‘Mom—I don’t want to hear it’: Brain response to maternal praise and criticism in adolescents with major depressive disorder

PMCID: 5460041
PMID: 28338795
DOI: 10.1093/scan/nsx014

[…] othed using a 4 point Gaussian filter and converted to %-change based on the median of the timeseries. Data were co-registered to the Colin-27 Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI) template using the Automated Image Registration package’s (AIR ()) 32 parameter non-linear automated warping algorithm and spatially smoothed using a 6 mm full width at half maximum (FWHM) filter. […]


Role of Diffusion Tensor Imaging in Prognostication and Treatment Monitoring in Niemann Pick Disease Type C1

PMCID: 5456286
PMID: 28933409
DOI: 10.3390/diseases4030029

[…] sis of the signal:noise ratio and bias using similar imaging protocol has been published [].All DTI data sets were processed offline using DTIStudio software. Using a 12-mode affine transformation of automated image registration, the raw diffusion-weighted images were coregistered to a b = 0 image []. The six independent elements of the diffusion tensor (Dxx, Dyy, Dzz, Dxy, Dxz, Dyz), including FA […]


Left hemisphere structural connectivity abnormality in pediatric hydrocephalus patients following surgery

PMCID: 5048110
PMID: 27722087
DOI: 10.1016/j.nicl.2016.09.003
call_split See protocol

[…] Head motion and eddy current artifacts in the DTI data were corrected using the Automated Image Registration method (). The B-matrix was rotated according to the subject motion correction (). The DTI metrics maps were calculated with standard technique (). Using MRI Studio (), th […]


Comparison of [11C]TZ1964B and [18F]MNI659 for PET imaging brain PDE10A in nonhuman primates

PMCID: 5045939
PMID: 27713824
DOI: 10.1002/prp2.253

[…] view. The actual field of view is 25.8 cm diameter and a 7.6 cm axial length. The reconstructed PET images was co‐registered with magnetization‐prepared rapid gradient echo (MP‐RAGE) MR images using Automated Image Registration (AIR) (Woods et al. ), and superimposed using Analyze 10.0 (AnalyzeDirect, Overland Park, KS) for quality control. For quantitative analyses, three‐dimensional regions of […]
