A C-library that simplifies EPIC pulse programming on GE MR systems is presented, containing a large set of new structs and functions for EPIC. Three pulse sequences have been developed (GRE, FSE and EPI) using this library with EPIC. These sequences have most of the functionality expected in a clinical neuro MRI setting, including arbitrary scan planes, full user interface support, online/offline reconstruction, and with common generic sequence plugins/modules such as SpatialSat, FatSat, and Inversion. The KSFoundation library, pulse sequences and sequence modules can be used to quickly develop new pulse sequences with reduced amount of code.
