native versions available for Linux or Windows, as well as X-windows support for Apple Macs
interoperability with other image analysis software
image and/or temporal filtering operations (e.g. reformatting, noise filtering, etc.)
statistical image processing operations (e.g. activation maps, region-of-interest statistics, etc.)
automated tissue segmentation and 3-D surface reconstructions (Voyvodic et al., 2004).
real-time fMRI analysis capabilities
on-line documentation and simple installation/updating tools
fScan was written by Jim Voyvodic. Version 1 was created at the Univerity of Pittsburgh.
