Computational Anatomy Portal:
The Computational Anatomy Portal provides access to the
developed at the Johns Hopkins University Center for Imaging Science.
Links are also provided to Computational Anatomy Processing Portals.
Atlases are generated using for anatomical structures from selected
population groups. Atlases have been developed for subcortical
structures in the human brain and the canine heart.
The atlases are available for
download at Atlases.
The process of using computer software to anlayze imaging data can be
described by pipelines. A pipeline describes the sequence of processing
steps and the software tools used. Different processes have been
developed to use computational anatomy tools to analyze data and
generate templates. The pipelines can be viewed at
The Center for Imaging Science is involved in a number of projects to
identify shape change of anatomical structures. The collaborations
involve several National Research Centers. Human diseases include
Alzheimer's, Autism, Parkinsons and Depression. Animal models of
Parkinsons and FragileX are studied. An outline of projects is located
Example statistical analysis utilizing R and Matlab code is provided under the Statistics
Software tools developed for the field of Computational Anatomy, together
with links to documentation of tools are provided at
page. Tools are currently available for volume, surface and landmark data types.
