We present a multiscale multimodal atlas of the mouse cerebral vasculature co-registered to the Allen Brain atlas space. To this end, we combined MRI anatomical imaging with the macro vasculature detected with TOF-MRA as well as the micro vasculature acquired from 3D microscopic imaging of a cleared mouse brain. To achieve a better homogeneity, we used a double labeling of the vasculature using isolectin to stain the vascular wall combined with an albumin staining of the blood vessel lumen. The atlas provides a reference space across multiple imaging modalities and a link to other functional, anatomical and genetic information.
