ScanImage supports three different imaging systemsdata acquisition hardware platforms:

  • RGGScan (for resonant scanning and/or galvo scanning with vDAQ hardware)
  • ResScan (for resonant scanning with NI FlexRIO hardware)
  • LinScan (for galvo/galvo scanning with NI hardware)Vidrio Technologies vDAQ (Recommended) - supports resonant and linear (galvo-galvo) imaging modes
  • National Instruments FlexRIO - supports resonant and linear (galvo-galvo) imaging modes
  • National Instruments DAQ - supports only linear (galvo-galvo) imaging

These imaging systems can be used separately from each other, or in combination for simultaneous imaging and photostimulation.

Wiring Guides

Please review the following documents for information about wiring the imaging systems

If ResScan parallel resonant and LinScan linear scanners are used for simultaneous imaging and photostimulation using National Instruments hardware, please review the article
