We have modified the Brain Extraction Tool (BET) so that it can successfully produce brain masks for rodent images. Previously the algorithm failed due to the different size and shape of rodent brains compared to humans. We have selected a more appropriate initial brain shape and search constants and demonstrate results with rat data.
