MRSequoia is a novel open-source framework to aid MR sequence developers in the design, prototyping and validation of MR sequences. It can import the Siemens IDEA simulator output, and construct an abstract sequence timing from it, allowing for visualization of various aspects of the timing, as well as running custom or pre-defined timing checks. Furthermore, the timing can be exported to MRiLab for accurate spin-physics simulations, ensuring that identically the same timing is used in the simulation and on the scanner. MRSequoia is freely available and can easily be modified and extended thanks to its modular and object-oriented design.
