Developed by Rainer Goebel of Brain Innovation BV, BrainVoyager QX is a highly optimized and user friendly software package for the analysis and visualization of functional and structural magnetic resonance imaging data sets. It runs on all major computer platforms including Linux / Unix, Windows and Mac OS X. This system provides the best graphics, comprehensive statistics, complete integration and in-depth user support. The software is in use in hundreds of imaging centers. BrainVoyager QX is also compatible with all BrainVoyager 2000/2002 files.


  • Extremely fast and highly optimized 2D and 3D analysis and visualization routines
  • Volume and cortex-based hypothesis-driven statistical data analysis (i.e. GLM) including conjunction and random effects analysis
  • Dynamic statistical thresholding using the False Discovery Rate (FDR) approach
  • Multi-subject Volume-of-Interest (VOI) and surface Patch-of-Interest (POI) analysis
  • Advanced methods for automatic brain segmentation, surface reconstruction, as well as cortex inflation and flattening
  • Cortex-based inter-subject alignment based on gyral / sulcal pattern of individual brains going beyond Talairach space
  • Analysis of Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) data including combined visualization with structural and functional MRI
  • Creation ("seeding") and visualization of EEG / MEG multiple dipole models in combination with the powerful BESA 2000 program
  • Integration of volume and surface rendering with powerful tools for the creation of high-quality figures and movies
  • Multi-processor support and an open architecture with documented file formats
  • Multiplatform scripting support allows you to analyze the data from many subjects in batch mode.
  • The available scripting and GUI tools also make it possible to extend BrainVoyager QX by enabling rapid application adaptation, tailoring the program to your own specific needs
  • The Windows version also supports COM-based interfaces, which can be accessed with all major computer languages (i.e. C/C++, VB, Java) as well as MATLAB
  • Comprehensive cross-platform solution embodied in a single product
  • The only complete solution running natively on all major platforms including Windows XP / 2000 / NT 4.0 / ME / 98 / 95, Linux / Unix and Mac OS X


  • Integrated FMRI suite of data management, statistical analysis, scientific visualization, and cortex segmentation
  • Student's t-test, linear correlation, cross-correlation, multiple regression, General Linear Model
  • Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, rank order correlation
  • Independent Component Analysis (ICA)
  • Inter-ROI / inter-subject time course averaging
  • Reading 2D image files: Siemens *.ima (byte swapping necessary), DICOM, ANALYZE format
  • Support for GE, Siemens, Bruker, Philips and Toshiba scanners
  • Fast 2D and 3D motion correction of small head movements
  • Easy creation of stimulation protocol either direct output by E-Prime or direct graphical entry of stimulus protocol
  • A defined stimulation protocol allows you to specify reference functions or groupings for statistical tests based solely on selection of stimulus conditions.


  • Creation and display of multiple surfaces (e.g. scenes composed of brain and transparently rendered head)
  • Coloring of meshes with respect to local computation of convex or concave surface patches
  • Surface slicing - Interactive real-time slicing through head / brain meshes showing anatomical and functional volume data
  • Cortex inflation, unfolding and flattening - Specification of parameters for various deformation forces (e.g., edge length, smoothing, target intensity range)


BrainVoyager QX can be purchased as a Base Module to focus on 2D visualization, or combined with the Surface Module to add powerful 3D tools and other advanced features.
