Overview

BrainWave Real Time

BrainWave RT provides real-time acquisition, processing and display of functional results. It makes it possible for one technologist to acquire, process and display BOLD (Blood Oxygen Level Dependent) fMRI studies acquired with synchronized stimuli.  It is comprehensive, the real-time functionality you need – including paradigm delivery, quality control, and real-time display of activation, overlaid on source EPI images.

The main features are:

  • Up to 50,000 images stored per series with data acquisition rates up to 20 images per second
  • Displays 2D activation maps overlaid over anatomic images in real time
  • Multiple 2x2 and 4x4 display
  • Optional saving of raw data in research mode for off-line analysis with 200,000 images

BrainWave Post-Acquisition on console

This high-performance software allows you to post-process raw fMRI data and generate 3D brain renderings displaying functional activation.  Display alternatives for these maps include cross sectional displays, activation Z-maps and composite paradigm displays.  The features include:

  • Integration into the operator console
  • Special graphic user interface for image analysis
  • Data quality check, motion correction, temporal filtering and spatial smoothing to optimize statistical analysis and mapping
  • Multiple regression analysis
  • The structural MRI scan is segmented using completely automatic threshold and histogram methods and mathematical morphology techniques 
  • Rapid retrospective motion correction
  • Sophisticated visualization techniques including true volume rendering, light box and orthogonal displays

BrainWave Fusion

BrainWave Fusion is an optional package that provides the ability to fuse high-resolution anatomical images with fMRI activation maps and diffusion tensor tractography maps. This package is useful for evaluating the spatial relationship between activation patterns, fiber tracts, and underlying anatomy and pathology.

“…fMRI may provide the treating team with information that could determine whether surgery is feasible.”
