Quantitative analysis of magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) data provides maps of metabolic parameters that show promise for improving medical diagnosis and therapeutic monitoring. While anatomical images are routinely reconstructed on the scanner, formatted using the DICOM standard, and interpreted using PACS workstations, this is not the case for MRSI data. The evaluation of MRSI data is made more complex because files are typically encoded with vendor-specific file formats and… 
Automated Prescription and Reconstruction of Brain MR Spectroscopy Data for Rapid Integration into the Clinical Workflow
TLDR
An automated and reproducible atlas-based prescription for single and multi-voxel MR spectroscopy data has been developed and combined with an online reconstruction that enables DICOM MRS results to be generated and sent to clinical PACS in realtime by the end of the MRI exam with the rest of the imaging data.
ORYX-MRSI: A Fully-Automated Open-Source Software for Three-Dimensional Proton Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopic Imaging Data Analysis
TLDR
A MATLAB-based open-source data analysis software for 3D 1D 1H-MRSI, called Oryx-M RSI, which includes modules for visualization of raw 1h- MRSI data and LCModel outputs, chemical shift correction, tissue fraction calculation, metabolite map production, and registration onto standard MNI152 brain atlas while providing automatic spectral quality control, is presented.
Osprey: Open-Source Processing, Reconstruction & Estimation of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy Data
TLDR
Osprey is the first MRS software to combine uniform pre-processing, linear-combination modelling, tissue correction and quantification into a coherent ecosystem, and compared to existing compiled, often closed-source modelling software, Osprey’s open-source code philosophy allows researchers to integrate state-of-the-art data processing and modelling routines, and potentially converge towards standardization of analysis.
From raw data to data-analysis for magnetic resonance spectroscopy – the missing link: jMRUI2XML
TLDR
jMRUI2XML provides a self-contained and self-descriptive format accounting for the most relevant information needed for exchanging magnetic resonance spectroscopy data in digital form, as well as for automating its processing.
An integrated visual analysis system for fusing MR spectroscopy and multi-modal radiology imaging
TLDR
A solution bridging this gap which gives fast and flexible access to all data at once by integrating a customized visualization of the multi-modal and multi-variate image data with a highly flexible visual analytics (VA) framework is presented.
A Survey on Visualizing Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy Data
TLDR
This paper is doing a review on how MRSI data is analysed in a medical environment as well as new approaches from the rendering and visual analytics areas, which conclude that this topic will be under the spotlight in the coming years.
Minimum Reporting Standards for in vivo Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRSinMRS): Experts' consensus recommendations
TLDR
A consensus group of MRS experts provides minimum guidelines for the reporting ofMRS methods and results, including the standardized description of M RS hardware, data acquisition, analysis, and quality assessment.
Methodological consensus on clinical proton MRS of the brain: Review and recommendations
TLDR
A consensus is presented on deficiencies in widely available MRS methodology and validated improvements that are currently in routine use at several clinical research institutions, and use of the semi‐adiabatic localization by adiabatic selective refocusing sequence is a recommended solution.
SpectraMosaic: An Exploratory Tool for the Interactive Visual Analysis of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy Data
TLDR
This design study collaborated with domain experts to design a novel visualization tool for the exploration of tissue metabolite concentration ratios in MRS clinical and research studies, and introduces a novel set of visual encodings for these attributes.

Design of flyback echo‐planar readout gradients for magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging
TLDR
In this study, high‐efficiency gradient waveforms for flyback echo‐planar MRSI were designed and implemented and require only a modest penalty in SNR relative to conventional phase encoding using the same acquisition time.
Relationship of pre-surgery metabolic and physiological MR imaging parameters to survival for patients with untreated GBM
TLDR
Intensity parameters associated with survival were the maximum and the sum of levels of lactate and of lipid within the CNI lesion, as well as the magnitude of the 10th percentile of the normalized ADC within the contrast-enhancing lesion.
Magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance spectroscopy for detection of early Alzheimer's disease.
TLDR
Adding MRS measures to a multivariate analysis of MRI measures resulted in significantly better classification than using MRI measures alone, and shows strong potential for discriminating between Alzheimer's disease and controls.
