BOLDscreen 24 LCD for fMRI

BOLDscreen 24 350x350

Questions about the BOLDscreen 24?


BOLDscreen 24 has been engineered from the ground up to provide the superior image quality necessary for vision research: super high brightness, high contrast, high resolution visual stimuli.

Our BOLDscreen monitors are the only "MRI Compatible" MR Safe displays with no time lag, integrated sensor for luminance calibration and, of course, no interference with the scanner, even when positioned right at the exit of the bore.

"BOLDscreen provides an absolutely fabulous image and our testing shows no artefacts whatsoever." - The NeuroImaging Center, Rijksuniversiteit Groningen.

MR Safety

BOLDscreen is categorised as MR safe in accordance with the labelling requirements of ASTM F2503-08 (“an item that poses no known hazards in all MR environments”). See FAQs.


The power supply and cables are MR conditional (“an item that has been demonstrated to pose no known hazards in a specified MR environment with specified conditions of use”).



BOLDscreen has no observed effect on functional and structural MRI scans at 3T, even with screen located at exit of scanner bore, and no effect on displayed image whilst scanning. See test data.
