There are two main approaches for modeling edited spectra: simple Gaussian modeling, and linear-combination modeling based on simulated metabolite basis functions. The simple Gaussian modeling of GSH in Gannet was reported to be less reproducible for HERMES than for MEGA-PRESS. Recent consensus recommended linear-combination modeling for quantification of edited MRS. Here we compared the performance of simple Gaussian and linear-combination modeling on a test-retest dataset to display the improvement of the reproducibility of metabolite quantification with HERMES.
