Anatomical criteria adopted to manually segment ROIs
Brain regions Anatomical boundaries for regions of interest (ROIs)
Whole brain Anterior - the first slide behind the eye sacs
Posterior - the first slide where the hemispheres disappear
Lateral ventricle Hyperintense T2 signal of the cerebrospinal fluid
Striatum Dorsal - corpus callosum
Lateral - external capsule
Medial - lateral ventricle
Ventral - anterior commissure
Cortex Internal - corpus callosum & vertical line from lateral edge
External - skull
Inferior - horizontal line from anterior commissure
Hippocampus External - corpus callosum
Internal - external capsule
