dcm2bids reorganises NIfTI files using dcm2niix into the Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS).


dcm2bids is a community-centered project. It aims to be a friendly, easy-to-use tool to convert your dicoms. Our main goal is to make the dicom to BIDS conversion as effortless as possible. Even if in the near future more advanced features will be added, we'll keep the focus on your day to day use case without complicating anything. That's the promise of the dcm2bids project.

Issues and Questions⚓︎

We work hard to make sure dcm2bids is robust and we welcome comments and questions to make sure it meets your use case! Here's our preferred workflow:

  • If you have a usage question 🙋, we encourage you to post your question on Neurostars with dcm2bids as an optional tag. The tag is really important because Neurostars will notify the dcm2bids team only if the tag is present. Neurostars is a question and answer forum for neuroscience researchers, infrastructure providers and software developers, and free to access.
    Before posting your question, you may want to first browse through questions that were tagged with the dcm2bids tag. If your question persists, feel free to comment on previous questions or ask your own question.

  • If you think you've found a bug 🐛, please open an issue on our repository. To do this, you'll need a GitHub account. See our contributing guide for more details.
