CSI Standardize Vertical Scale Spectroscopy (A-E-Line)

This Job Aid provides workflow steps on how to standardize the vertical scale for a CSI Spectroscopy dataset 

Standardize Vertical Scale MR Spectroscopy Postprocessing (A to E-line) Spectroscopy evaluation provides an overview of the enlarged spectrum of interest. To obtain a better visual representation of the differences between voxels with normal and abnormal tissue you can standardize the vertical scale. 1.
