BIDS community review for BEP022: MR Spectroscopy

We are pleased to announce the community review period for BEP 022 - MR Spectroscopy (MRS)!

This BIDS Extension Proposal extends the BIDS standard to include MRS. We have developed the extension to align with the current community consensus on MRS data and metadata terminology and organization while also matching as closely as possible and appropriately with the BIDS’s guidelines for MRI techniques.

The community review period is open from June 3 - June 14, 2024.
