SPM2 Gem 3: Finding p–value and statistics for all voxels

Copy and paste the following into Matlab, and select the appropriate
spmT or spmF images.  The first 3 columns are MNI coordinates.  The
fourth is the statistic.  I haven't included any p-values, but this
would be a relatively simple operation, provifing you can figure out
degres of freedom etc.  Use spm_Tcdf.m or spm_Fcdf.m to do this.

 P=spm_get(1,'*.img','Select statistic image');

 [x,y,z] = ndgrid(1:V.dim(1),1:V.dim(2),0);
 for i=1:V.dim(3),
   z   = z + 1;
   tmp = spm_sample_vol(V,x,y,z,0);
   msk = find(tmp~=0 & finite(tmp));
   if ~isempty(msk),
     tmp = tmp(msk);
     xyz1=[x(msk)'; y(msk)'; z(msk)'; ones(1,length(msk))];
     for j=1:length(tmp),
       fprintf('%.4g %.4g %.4g\t%g\n',xyzt(1,j),xyzt(2,j),xyzt(3,j),tmp(j));
