Among several QA gears, many Flywheel sites have installed the MRIQC gear. Along with the DICOM classifier and dcm2niix gear, the MRIQC is a great candidate to be configured to run automatically on your project as a Gear Rule.
If you have a MRIQC gear configured on your Project so that it runs on the appropriate images, you can view the QA report by selecting the View icon on any `qa` file. These output files of the MRIQC gear are placed in the same container as the input files, because the MRIQC gear is a Utility Gear.
The MRIQC report will provide you several visual reports and image quality metrics giving you the ability to visually inspect your images quickly.
Visual Report examples:
The most recent version of the gear also extracts the image quality metrics and attaches them to the `qa` file as metadata. These metrics can then be accessed by the Search functionality, other gears, or through the SDK.
