Systems and methods for generating a numerical model of the human head are provided. A numerical model may be created by generating a data array in a magnetic resonance modeling system, each cell of the array corresponding to a location in the head. The cells may be grouped into one or more regions, each group corresponding to a segment of the head. The cells of the array may be populated with values corresponding to tissue properties relevant to MR imaging. Tissue property values may be selected for each region based on one or more probability distributions. For each region and each tissue property, a value may be selected based on a corresponding probability distribution. Selected tissue property values may be input into cells in the array corresponding to the region with which the probability distribution is associated. The numerical model may be used as an input to an MRI simulator.
