Hello fMRIprep crowd,
I have been very much impressed with the fMRIprep ease-of-use and the general community vibe so thank you to all the developers for creating such environment.
My question regards missing DICOM files in one of the clinical datasets I hope to pre-process with fMRIprep.
I have pre-intervention fMRI and T1 DICOMs scans for all patients but only post-intervention fMRI and T1 NIFTI scans for all patients. Given the scanning parameters are kept constant, would it be possible to re-use the JSON files from the pre-interventions scans for the post-intervention scans? If so, is there anything I have to specifically take care of (such as disabling slice-time correction)?
I am aware of the fMRIprep philosophy and the fact this is not the standard way of preparing datasets for fMRIprep, however, my experience with clinical dataset is that they are often incomplete or missing and some solution to such issues might be useful in general to the community. I hope this is a reasonable question for the developers.
Many thanks in advance
