The new sequence Echo Planar Imaging Phase Contrast (EPI-PC) allows real-time imaging of blood flow and can be used to study the effect of breathing unlike to the normal Phase Contrast Magnetic Resonance Imaging sequence (Nor-PC). However, there is no software for the processing of EPI-PC data. We developed new software to visualize, segment and analyze EPI-PC data. We implemented in the software functions as filtering, denoising, segmentation, reconstruction, and extraction that can be applied on EPI-PC signal. This software was easy to use and gave promising results for the quantification of blood flow and the study of breathing effect.
