iBEAT: Infant Brain Extraction and Analysis Toolbox
The infant brain undergoes a dynamic expansion as the baby was born. The magnetic resonance (MR) imaging enables us to harmlessly track and monitor this both neurological and anatomical important brain development trajectory in-vivo. However, due to the undergoing myelination procedure and fast brain expansion speed, the quantitative analysis of the structural infant brain MR images meets several notorious challenges, including poor tissue contrast and dynamic brain appearance changing. To meet these challenges, the infant brain structural image processing pipeline is developed, which is dedicated to facilitating the infant structural brain MR image (mainly the T1-weighted and / or the T2-weighted image) processing.
