In-vivo information about myelin content in the brain is desirable for studying brain diseases and injuries. Normative information is key for determining what is abnormal when assessing neurological conditions that affect myelin. We used myelin water imaging to create a template specific to myelin, the myelin water atlas, for healthy brains. The resulting atlas shows strong agreement with well-known anatomical features that have demonstrated that different brain regions have distinct amounts of myelin. Our work shows one of the potential applications of using the myelin water atlas as a reference to visualize demyelination in the brain of individual subjects.
