Longitudinal Data Information

Three stages (ADNI, ADNI-GO and ADNI2) exists with 800-1000 subjects and several time points approx. 6 months to a year apart.

Diffusion Data


This contains the baseline diffusion scans for ADNI2 subjects.

Manually Labeled Hippocampus Dataset

The following path leads to a dataset of 135 ADNI subjects with manually labeled hippocampus, labeled using a standard protocol.
