    3 VeSPA is a free software suite composed of magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) applications called Simulation, RFPulse, Priorset and Analysis. These powerful tools are for magnetic resonance (MR) spectral simulation, MR RF pulse design, simulated MRS data creation and spectral processing and analysis of MR data.

    5 The VeSPA suite is a significant rewrite of three existing MRS software tools [http://cds.ismrm.org/ismrm-2003/0852.pdf IDL-GAVA/Gamma], IDL-Vespa, and [http://www.mmrrcc.upenn.edu/downloads/matpulse.html MatPulse]. VeSPA enhances and extends their capabilities and provides a free, integrated, open source, and open development platform.

    7 VeSPA's applications run separately, yet can communicate via a shared database of objects and results. One example of inter-application sharing is that ''Simulation'' can make use of an radio frequency pulse designed in ''RFPulse'' to create a more realistic MR simulation. The output of ''Simulation'' can in turn be used as improved prior information in ''Analysis'' for a more robust spectral fit of experimentally generated data. ''Simulation'' output can also be used in ''Priorset'' to create user defined MRS data sets with varying amounts of added noise that can be used to test algorithms in ''Analysis''.
