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

Figure 5

On-scanner MRSI workflow. SIVIC running on the scanner reads raw MRSI vendor data and anatomical DICOM MRI images. 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 images are 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. CPU intensive on-scanner reconstruction may require a computational cluster for real-time analysis during an exam.
