Approaches to magnetic resonance (MR) image acquisition and computational modelling often exist in silo. The application of computational modelling to paediatric data is in its infancy. This collaborative study addresses this gap for multiple organ systems. State-of-the art MR imaging sequences were selected and refined to provide imaging data for the creation of subject-specific geometric models. The MR protocol and modelling outputs will underpin a longitudinal paediatric study set in Aotearoa New Zealand, generating normative data in healthy children, and identifying early biomarkers of pathological processes. This will enable the development of new personalised, predictive, and preventative models of care.
