BIDSLink

IntroductionLink

BIDS (Brain Imaging Data Structure) is the standard adopted for the organisation of the datasets used by Clinica pipelines through the command line.

BIDS provides a unified structure for organising and describing neuroimaging and behavioural data. The use of standard like BIDS make easier developing and distributing code that uses neuroimaging datasets.

For this reasons, when using Clinica pipelines from the command line, the input format of the dataset is required to be BIDS-compliant.
