Abstract: The CIeMed electronic brain atlas system contains electronic versions of multiple paper brain atlases with 3D extensions; some other 3D brain atlases are under development. Its primary goal is to provide automatic labeling and quantification of brains. The atlas data are digitized, enhanced, color coded, labeled, and organized into volumes. The atlas system provides several tools for registration, 3D display and real-time manipulation, object extraction/editing, quantification, image processing and analysis, reformatting, anatomical index operations, and file handling. The two main stereotactic atlases provided by the system are electronic and enhanced versions of Atlas of Stereotaxy of the Human Brain by Schaltenbrand and Wahren and Co- Planar Stereotactic Atlas of the Human Brain by Talairach and Tournoux. Each of these atlases has its own strengths and their combination has several advantages. First, a complementary information is merged and provided to the user. Second, the user can register data with a single atlas only, as the Schaltenbrand- Wahren-Talairach-Tournoux registration is data-independent. And last but not least, a direct registration of the Schaltenbrand- Wahren microseries with MRI data may not be feasible, since cerebral deep structures are usually not clearly discernible on MRI images. This paper addresses registration of the Schaltenbrand-Wahren and Talairach-Tournoux brain atlases. A modified proportional grid system transformation is introduced and suitable sets of landmarks identifiable in both atlases are defined. The accuracy of registration is discussed. A continuous navigation in the multi-atlas/patient data space is presented.
