Using preprocessed T1 and fMRI images with fMRIPrep for incremental processing of new session

I already had several output files from fmriprep including T1 and fmri images of a subject, and the same subject went through another fmri session.
I wonder if I can use fmriprep to process this new session in an incremental way, skipping the structural preprocessing and using the preprocessed structural file?

Hi @biobot,

If you have the working directory available you can simply rerun fmriprep (using the same working directory).

Otherwise you can use the —anat-derivatives argument. This is getting refactored in the upcoming 23.2.0 release though.
