This is a list of single-voxel MRS datasets.
Basis sets for PRESS, STEAM and sLASER for multiple vendors
These basis sets were generated using the exact waveforms, timings and 128^3 spatial points to appropriately accommodate the sidebands for each vendor/sequence combination. More details about the acquisition can be found in the reference below.

This repository contains a subset of a large-scale multi-vendor, multi-site collection of single-voxel MRS and structural MRI datasets that were acquired internationally across 26 research sites on 3T MRI scanners from the three major vendors (GE, Philips, Siemens). Each site acquired up to 12 datasets.

Fitting challenge data, MRS Workshop 2016
Synthetic data mimicking single-voxel 3 T PRESS TE = 30 ms MRS spectra. Data were simulated using ideal pulses and the known metabolites concentrations in the human brain. The experimentally acquired macromolecular contribution was also used. The following things were modulated in the datasets: non-Lorentzian broadening, concentrations of GABA, GSH and macromolecules, signal-to-noise (SNR) variations, and artifacts. These data was used in the Fitting Challenge organized as part of the ISMRM Workshop on MR Spectroscopy: From Current Best Practice to Latest Frontiers, Lake Constance, Germany, 2016.

MM human brain spectra 9.4T - TE series / Fit Settings LCModel
This are TE series (TE = 24,32,40,52,60 ms) DIR semi-LASER macromolecular spectra. They were measured in the occipital lobe (in GM rich and WM voxels) of the human brain. The provided data are averages from 11 subjects. Additionally, the fitsettings and sample fits are provided. An explanation on how to set up the fit settings file is provided in the Readme.MD.

MM Consensus Data Collection
This repository contains a number of pre-processed macromolecule (metabolite-nulled) spectra in Varian format (sometimes converted from Siemens format), acquired at different field strengths from different mammals, including human. These data are represented in Figure 1 of the recently published consensus on macromolecule acquisition and handling.

Multi-site Frequency Drift MR Spectroscopy
This dataset consists of PRESS data acquired before and after running a heavy gradient duty fMRI sequence using standardized protocols for GE, Philips and Siemens scanners. 1) Pre-fMRI PRESS (TR/TE = 5000/35 ms; FA = 90°; 64 transients; no water suppression; voxel size = 2 × 2 × 2 cm3; second-order shim; scan duration = 5:20 min); 2) BOLD-weighted EPI based on the ADNI-3 protocol (Weiner et al., 2017) (TR/TE = 3000/30 ms; 197 dynamics; EPI factor/echo train length = 31/64, duration = 10 min); -3) Post-fMRI PRESS (same parameters as for pre-fMRI PRESS except 360 transients and duration = 30 min).

9.4T MR Spectra from rat hippocampus with LCModel quantification and the corresponding basis set
This repository contains the LCModel quantifications of 9.4T spectra acquired in hippocampus from 7 rats. The spectra were quntified using six different DKNTMN (spline stiffness) values (0.1, 0.25, 0.4, 0.5, 1, 5). In the folder Control_files_Basis_set you can find all the control files used in this quantification along with the corresponding basis set (metabolites/simulated using NMRScopeB from jMRUI and in vivo parameters + full MM spectrum).
