VDI (Visual Display Interface) is a collection of MATLAB libraries created to visualize and process multiresolution data, such as MRS, MRSI, fMRI and anatomical MRI. An additional sub-library called SpinTool (independently available for download) can be used to easily and quickly write Bloch simulations and simulations of J-coupled spins.

FSL-MRS is a collection of python modules and wrapper scripts for pre-processing and model fitting of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) and Spectroscopic Imaging (MRSI) data.

The MIDAS software consists of several modules for MRSI reconstruction, display, and analysis. It is closely associated with the volumetric EPSI sequence that we make available for Siemens MR systems. MIDAS is written in IDL, but also uses Java and C functions. It can be run using a free IDL license (with some limitations). A binary installation can be obtained from the web site and all source code is available from the developers on request.

QMRITools is written in Mathematica using Wolfram Workbench and Eclipse and contains a collection of tools and functions for processing quantitative MRI data. The software tools for spectroscopy are mostly focussed on 31P CSI analysis but do not exclude other nuclei and/or acquistion methods. The basic features include methods for manipulating and processing spectra (including PCA denoising and deconvolution), generation of basis spectra using j-coupling simulations and fitting of basis spectra to the spectra.

SIVIC is an open-source, standards-based software framework and application suite for processing and visualizing DICOM MR Spectroscopy data.

The Stanford CNI MRS Library (SMAL) provides algorithms and methods to read and analyze data from Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) experiments. It provides an API for fitting models of the spectral line-widths of several different molecular species, and quantify their relative abundance in human brain tissue
