BrainVoyager QX v2.8

General Overview

BrainVoyager QX is a powerful neuroimaging software package. It started as a tool for the analysis of anatomical and functional MRI data sets but has evolved over the years into a multi-modal analysis tool for fMRI, DTI, TMS, EEG and MEG data. The software is highly optimized and user friendly running on all major computer platforms including Windows (XP/Vista/7), Linux (i.e. Ubuntu, SUSE, Fedora) and Mac OS X (10.6 or higher). It offers for all platforms both a 32 and a 64 bit version to allow handling problems requiring more than 3 GB. In order to obtain maximum speed on each platform, BrainVoyager QX has been completely programmed in C++ with optimized and highly efficient statistical, numerical, and image processing routines. It supports on all platforms fast parallelized basic math routines using the Intel MKL library. The software also exploits modern multi-core, multi-processor hardware for the most demanding computational routines. Multiple parallel processing pipelines of modern graphic cards (GPU's) are used for real-time volume rendering. The surface rendering environment ("surface module") has been implemented using OpenGL. The interactive graphical user interface (GUI) has been built using the award-winning cross-platform Qt C++ toolkit from Nokia (formerly Trolltech). Using cross-platform C++ code for all aspects of the program, BrainVoyager QX provides a native and responsive user interface and powerful computational routines on all supported platforms.

The program provides many basic and advanced features, including:

BrainVoyager QX provides a comprehensive cross-platform solution embodied in a single product. The software allows easy exchange of data between platforms handling transparently potential byte order differences ("big endian" vs "little endian"). Data analyzed on one platform - for example Windows - can be moved to another platform - for example Mac OS X on Intel or PowerPC hardware - and processed further without any problem.
