Resource Description

MATPULSE is a program written in Matlab with GUI interfaces that enables calculation of Shinnar-LeRoux (SLR) frequency selective RF pulses. The program also provides pulse re-mapping (the MATPULSE version of VERSE), and includes a Bloch equations section, and a variety of other calculations, including gradient refocusing, and calculation of the effects due to relaxation. Additional features include pulse concatenation, root reflection, calculation of the effects  of flow, and optimization of pulses with immunity to B1 inhomogeneity by optimal control.
