Abstract

Studies with functional magnetic resonance (MR) imaging produce large unprocessed raw data sets in minutes. The analysis usually requires transferring of the data to an off-line workstation, and this process frequently occurs after the subject has left the MR unit. The authors describe a hardware configuration and processing software that captures whole-brain raw data files as they are being produced from the MR unit. It then performs the reconstruction, registration, and statistical analysis, and displays the results in seconds after completion of the MR image acquisition.
