Cornell Vet Creates Equine Brain Atlas, Shares Images For Free

Dr. Philippa Johnson, a clinical radiologist in the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) has successfully created brain atlases for a dog, cat and horse. These atlases will provide additional information to veterinarians using an MRI to assist in a diagnosis.

Brain atlases are used in human clinical research, but had not been applied to the veterinary world—until now. Johnson created the atlases by using multiple animals of each species; the images, by specie, can be compared to each other as well as used together to create a standardized region of the brain that can be compared across subjects.

To create the atlases, Johnson and her colleagues used 3-Tesla magnets, which have twice the power of an MRI machine, to image the brains of 15 euthanized horses. The researchers also made the atlas so users can separate specific parts of the brain to see it in more detail.
