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

Currently available data include (1) standard GABA+-edited MEGA-PRESS data, (2) macromolecule-suppressed GABA-edited MEGA-PRESS data, and (3) short-TE PRESS data.
