If you have existing data that follows the Bruker format and you would like to import in to Flywheel, use the Flywheel CLI. This article explains how to upload data that follows the Bruker structure.
Before you begin
Follow these instructions to download and install the Flywheel CLI. If you cannot download the Flywheel CLI to your computer, you can upload smaller batches of files using your web browser.
Open Terminal or Windows Command Prompt.
Note the location of the parent folder containing the DICOM files you are importing.
Enter the following command:
fw import bruker <folder containing data> <group_ID> <project_label>
fw import bruker ~/Documents/Study1Psych "Example Study"
Note: If your project label includes spaces, place quotes around it when entering the command.
Flywheel CLI displays the data it has found and notes where it will import the files. It also notes if the Flywheel CLI will create a new container or use an existing container for the files.
Review the hierarchy and scan summary as shown above to make sure it matches what you expect.
Where are my files?
The Flywheel CLI takes the related image files and groups them in to single a zip file. In the scan summary, this is called a packfile. The Flywheel CLI imports the
zipfile in the Acquisitions tab.
Enter yes to begin importing. The Flywheel CLI displays its import progress.
Once complete, sign in to Flywheel and view your data,
