This work aims at the detection of abnormal relaxation times in the human brain. To that end, a pipeline for creating normative atlases was established. High-resolution atlases of normative T1 and T2 values were created based on mapping data from 52 healthy subjects. A regression model including gender and age was introduced and z-score maps calculated to compare T1 and T2 maps of a single-subject to the derived norms. Initial results based on multiple sclerosis patient data detect not only lesional tissue but also presumably altered normal-appearing white matter regions.
