INTERPRET Decision-Support System

The INTERPRET Decision-Support System (INTERPRET DSS) for human brain tumour diagnosis based on Single Voxel Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy data allows radiologists, medical physicists, biochemists or, generally speaking, any person with a minimum knowledge of what an MR spectrum is, to enter their own SV raw data, acquired at 1.5 T, and to analyse them.

The INTERPRET DSS version 3.2. is now compatible with the XML format in which jMRUI2XML outputs.

The INTERPRET DSS is a user-friendly software designed to fulfil the needs of potential users in the MRS community.
