coreMRI: How to run my first simulation (MR imaging)

Once you log in to coreMRI and open the simulation platform, switch to the MR imaging mode (if not already there). In MR Imaging mode, the template of the simulation platform is in blue color (compared to the green color of the quantitative MR mode). 

The MR imaging simulation requires an anatomical model and a pulse sequence. The coreMRI development team provides a few anatomical models and pulse sequences that can be used by any user. These objects are available through the public repository and need to be "transferred" or "followed" in order to be used in the simulations. In pulse sequences, select the menu item "Library" from the left-side menu (step 1 in image below), then click on the tab "Public Repository" (step 2 in image below) and then click on the toggle button of the pulse sequence that you would like to "follow" (step 3 in image below).

 

For anatomical models, select the menu item "Anatomical Models" from the left-side menu (step 1 in image below), then click on the tab "Public Repository" (step 2 in image below) and then click on the toggle button of the anatomical model that you would like to "follow" (step 3 in image below).

Once you have followed these objects (both pulse sequence and anatomical model) that you would like to simulate on coreMRI, select the menu-item "Simulation" from the left-side menu (step 1 in image below), select the pulse sequence (step 2 in image below), the anatomical model (step 3 in image below) and the computer system for your simulation (step 4 in image below). Once you do that, click on the button "Run Simulation" (step 5 in image below).

You can check the progress of your simulation at page "Experiments". Once the simulation has been successfully completed, you can download the results of the MR simulation by clicking on the download icon.
