Uploading Data (Platform and QMENTA Uploader)

With QMENTA, you have two ways to upload data: From the Platform or from the Uploader. We will below explain both.

Format

Both Platform and uploader work with ZIP files. Please note that if you use WinRAR , you have to select the ZIP option.

Platform

You can upload:

  • 1 Zip Files
  • 1 Nifti

You can only upload 1 file at a time.
If you upload a ZIP file, it will create 1 Subject and 1 Session. However, if you upload DICOM files, the system will create different sessions per timepoints, for 1 Subject.


Note: If you receive an email with "No files of Interest", it is because we are not able to unzip a folder or the system can't read the format.

TIP: 
If you have several subjects to upload, you will have to do 1 by 1.
If you have several sessions for 1 subject, you will have to upload 1 by 1 and enter the same Subject name, except for DICOM files.

Uploader

With the uploader, you can upload more than 1 ZIP file with 1 upload.

On top of that, you can also select several non-ZIP folders - one folder is 1 Subject for 1 Session.



Note: If you receive an email with "No files of Interest", it is because we are not able to unzip a folder or the system can't read the format.

 

TIP: If you want to upload several sessions for 1 subject, you need to enter the same Subject ID.

 

To conclude:
It really depends on how you structured your data and how many subjects you would like to upload.
If you only have one folder, you can convert it into a ZIP file and upload via the platform.
If you have several ZIP files/folders, I would advise using the QMENTA Uploader.
