In order to facilitate the use of quantitative mapping approaches in clinical routine, atlases with normative quantitative values are required for comparison on a single-subject basis. To improve such comparison, we propose here to not only model the age-related change in T1, but also the change in brain shape. The method is demonstrated on a dataset of 196 quantitative T1 maps, yielding a brain model with shape and T1 information over the potential lifespan of a patient to assess.
