A 3D magnetic-resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) dataset, acquired from a patient with multi-focal brain tumor using automatically-prescribed saturation bands (orange, a, b). Metabolite maps (c) and spectral arrays (d,e) show increased coverage of the brain volume. Sample spectra from central and peripheral brain are shown in (f,g). Extended coverage allowed to cover both tumors in one acquisition, which was not possible before.
SIVIC - Spectroscopic Imaging, VIsualization and Computing
SIVIC is an open-source standards-based software framework and application suite for processing and visualization of DICOM MR Spectroscopy data.
A diagram for 3D MRSI pulse sequence, developed for use in a protocol with automatic prescription. The dualband outer-volume suppression (OVS) radio-frequency pulses were designed to create two parallel saturation bands with a single RF pulse to reduce the power, emitted into the head and improve data quality.
Funding: Partial funding for SIVIC was provided by NIH P01 CA118816 and NIH RO1CA127612.
