SIVIC: Open-Source, Standards-Based Software for DICOM MR Spectroscopy Workflows

Figure 10

Off-scanner MRSI workflow. SIVIC command line tools running on the scanner convert vendor raw MRS data to DICOM Raw Data Storage SOP instances. Anatomical MRI and raw DICOM data is sent to PACS. A research workstation retrieves DICOM images from PACS. MRSI data is reconstructed and DICOM MRS, DICOM MRI metabolite maps and DICOM secondary capture (SC) images are exported and sent to PACS. DICOM SC and DICOM MRI data is viewed in the reading room. DICOM MRI (anatomical and metabolite maps) and DICOM MRS images may be viewed on a research workstation running SIVIC or other DICOM applications.
