Ploting LC Model Basis file

Hello Experts
I am new to MRS, and currently working on basis set generation.
Is there any way we can plot existing LCModel basis file (.BASIS), may be in LCmodel or any other software?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Munna,

The FID-A toolbox can be used to plot the basis.

Read the basis set into a FID-A structure:

mybasis = io_readlcmraw_basis('mybasisfile.basis')

Plot NAA, for example:


Hope this helps!


For a quick inspection, another option is to use FSL-MRS basis_tools, like this:

basis_tools vis mybasisfile.basis

…although the FID-A option may be a little more flexible if you wish to customise the output a bit.
