MGH Neonatal/Pediatric ADC atlases

Existing neonatal/pediatric atlases were mainly on structural MRI. We release here a set of Apparent Diffusion Coefficient (ADC) atlases, on 10 age groups: first 2 weeks of life, the rest of the 1st quarter, the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th quarters of life, year 1-2, 2-3, 3-4, 4-5 and 5-6). Atlases represent the mean geometry/anatomy of the age group, and the mean and standard deviation ADC values at the whole brain, regional (61 regions) and voxel levels.

The age-specific ADC atlases characterize normative ADC development in 0-6 years of life (in neuroscience) and can provide reference to identify abnormalities (in pediatric neuroradiology).
