XNAT Upload instructions using .csv file

To upload (Assuming you have already an xnat-project).

  1. Organise the DICOMs you want to upload into a structure like: mymaindirectory/
    • DICOMdir1
    • DICOMdir2
    • DICOMdirN

Where DICOMdir contains the DICOM data for a specific session for a certain subject (subject_ID)

  1. Create a .csv file (e.g. myproject.csv) with 3 columns:

|subject_ID | DICOMdir | scan_date | |————-|————|—————|

  • subject_ID is uniquely associated with the participant
  • directory is the name of the directory containing the DICOM files to upload. If more sessions of a certain subject exist, they have the code of the session (e.g. Calpendo ID)
  1. Run the script:

E.g. usage ./ myproject.csv <xnat-username> <xnat-project_id> mymaindirectory > output_log.txt

This script calls so make sure you have both.
