The default post-processing methods implemented by magnetic resonance hardware manufacturers can often be proprietary closed-box algorithms, making it difficult to process data from unconventionally-acquired sequences. By reading and processing scan data from Siemens and Varian sequences directly into MATLAB, a robust and flexible post-processing utility has been created. The program can read, plot and quantify data from a variety of sequences and resolve issues associated with conventionally processing data from advanced sequences like parallel diagonals from phased-array coil combination. The new program can facilitate the development of new advanced or unconventional sequences.
