Abstract

In clinical research, neuroimaging pipelines are mainly used to combine the strength of single analysis tools and to accelerate the data analysis. Pipeline frameworks, such as Nipype[1] or LONI[2] (Table 1), should be a researcher’s first choice to implement pipelines. However, clinical researchers often prefer Bash[3] scripts due to their simplicity and because pipeline frameworks still require specialist knowledge for setup and use.
To encourage the use of pipeline frameworks in clinical research, we developed our own open source pipeline framework, BRICpipe. Here, we present BRICpipe’s design and some validation results to show how BRICpipe compares to Nipype and Bash scripts.
