V is our attempt to provide a general-purpose software system for magnetic resonance imaging and spectral reconstruction, processing, and analysis. It is intended not to be a comprehensive package including every known algorithm, but rather as a basic package including some of the popular reconstruction tools. Moreover, it is largely aimed at providing a means for distribution of functions among researchers in the MR community. V has been designed so that software development does not require an immense knowledge of the internal operation of the program. Rather, the programmer can develop individual functions indepently of V. After validation and testing, these functions can be incorporated into the V program with minimum modification.
