    3 VeSPA stands for Versatile Simulation Pulses and Analysis. The environment contains three magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) software applications called RFPulse, Simulation and Analysis. These are applications for MR RF pulse design, MR spectral simulation, and spectral processing and analysis of MR data.

    5 '''What is VeSPA''' ([wiki:LongVersion Longer Version]) ?
     5VeSPA is a set of three magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) software applications called Simulation, RFPulse and Analysis. These powerful tools are for magnetic resonance (MR) spectral simulation, MR RF pulse design, and spectral processing and analysis of MR data.

    7 The VeSPA package extends the maintenance and development of three previously developed magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) software tools by migrating them into an integrated, open source, open development platform. VeSPA stands for Versatile Simulation Pulses and Analysis.

    9 VeSPA consists of three combined applications called RFPulse, Simulation and Analysis that were migrated from three previous standalone applications:

    11     * RFPulse <-> [http://www.rrmind.research.va.gov/software/matpulse.asp MatPulse] - software for RF pulse design written in [http://www.mathworks.com/ Matlab]
    12     * Simulation <-> [http://cds.ismrm.org/ismrm-2003/0852.pdf GAVA/Gamma] - software for spectral simulation written in [http://www.ittvis.com/ProductServices/IDL.aspx IDL]
    13     * Analysis <-> IDL_Vespa - a package for spectral data processing and analysis written in [http://www.ittvis.com/ProductServices/IDL.aspx IDL]

    15 The new VeSPA project addresses previous software limitations, including: non-standard data access, closed source multiple language software that complicatee algorithm extension and comparison, lack of integration between programs for sharing prior information, and incomplete or missing d ocumentation and educational content.
     7The VeSPA package extends the maintenance and development of three previously developed MRS software tools by migrating them into an integrated, open source, open development platform.

    179These applications can be run separately but can communicate among themselves via a shared database of objects/results. One example of inter- application sharing might be that Simulation would make use of an RF pulse designed in RFPulse application to create a more realistic MR simulation.
