Vascular Territory template and atlases in MNI space

The brain can be spatial differentiated into vascular territories based on supplying arteries. Generally, in the human brain, we distinguish between the anterior and posterior circulation. Additionally, the anterior supratentorial circulation can be differentiated into the anterior (ACA) and middle cerebral artery (MCA) territories, whereas the posterior cerebral artery (PCA) supplies the posterior supratentorial vascular area. We created this template to analyze spatial patterns of white matter hyperintensities in stroke patients, however, other investigations may benefit from the template, which allows for automated analyses of large scale data sets. The data is publicly available on Zenodo ("Vascular Territory template and atlases in MNI space"), with the corresponding open-access paper in Frontiers in Neurology entitled "Spatial Signature of White Matter Hyperintensities in Stroke Patients".
