The process of brain aging is characterized by the accumulation of multiple structural changes, several of which can be visualized using clinical MRI. Brain Atrophy and Lesion Index (BALI) has been validated to collectively assess MRI-based whole-brain structural changes. This study aims to improve the BALI assessment of whole-brain structural changes in aging using multiple routine clinical MRI sequences (T1WI, T2WI, T2-FLAIR and T2*GRE).
