UHF 7T MR
scanners offers the possibility to acquire very high resolution in-vivo images,
providing a new insight into human brain structural characterization.
Nevertheless, in order to obtain highly contrasted and highly spatially
resolved atlas, and to compensate for the drop in SNR related to reduction of
the voxel size, averaging data among several subjects is needed. We
present in this abstract an automatic pipeline that generates a whole brain high-resolution T1-weighted template (called 7TAMIbrainT1w_30) built from MP2RAGE
acquisitions obtained in 30 healthy controls at 7T.
