Image Databases for Repeatability Studies
Within the population-based Rotterdam Study, MRI imaging of several areas of the body is being performed since 2005.
In line with the above mentioned initiatives, the Rotterdam Study also provides open-access imaging datasets on:
- Brain MRI – (the Rotterdam Scan Study – http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22002080). An example dataset is available here (might take some time to load).
- MRI of the carotid arteries (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21821844).
For more information on these datasets, please contact us.
