Rapid neurodevelopmental changes can be investigated using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). An anatomical model of development can be obtained by modeling quantitative maps of healthy infants and toddlers. In this work we modeled regional and whole-brain T1, T2, and MWF maps of healthy children under 5 years of age. This model can be used to characterize normal development and serve as a baseline of typical development.
