SWIFT

You are here

The SWIFT sequences developed at CMRR are now available for use at other institutions by MTA agreement with CMRR.

The available software versions are listed below. The DJ Swift Software is the current version under development. The older RC Swift Software is still available, but no longer being actively updated. If you are interested in obtaining these sequences, please contact Mike Garwood for more information.

If you have executed a MTA agreement and have been given an access password, the software can be downloaded here by selecting the desired release number.
