iBEAT (Infant Brain Extraction and Analysis Toolbox, previously called LIBRA) is a toolbox with graphical user interfaces for processing infant brain MR images. Longitudinal (or single-time-point) multimodality (including T1, T2, and FA) (or single-modality) data can be processed using the toolbox. Main functions of the software (step by step) include image preprocessing, brain extraction, tissue segmentation and brain labeling.
There are 3 atlases dedicated for neonates, 1-year-olds, and 2-year-olds. Each atlas comprises a set of 3D images made up of the intensity model, tissue probability maps, and anatomical parcellation map. These atlases are constructed with the help of state-of-the-art infant MR segmentation and groupwise registration methods, on a set of longitudinal images acquired from 95 normal infants (56 males and 39 females) at neonate, 1-year-old, and 2-year-old.
