Error with importing pre-processed HCP-D data

Hi :slight_smile:
I want to process the diffusion data from the HCP-development dataset with the already preprocessed structural data. However, I failed trying to import the processed data with the import_hcp command and the new --processed_data flag (QuNex v0.99.2).

Do I miss some naming specifications or extra settings?

Many thanks in advance! <3

My command is:

qunex_container import_hcp --sessionsfolder=$STUDYDIR/sessions \
    --inbox=$RAWDIR/imagingcollection01 --action='copy' \
    --overwrite=yes --archive='leave' \

And runs with the following log:

Hi Leon,

1/ I assume that bval and bvec files are where they are supposed to be and named as they should be. That is inside HCD0001305_V1_MR/unprocessed/diffusion. For example, there you should have 4 files for each dMRI:


2/ You could also try onboarding without the processed data. For example for a single session as a test:

qunex_container import_hcp \
    --sessionsfolder=$STUDYDIR/sessions \
    --sessions="HCD0001305_V1_MR" \
    --inbox=$RAWDIR/imagingcollection01 \
    --action='copy' \
    --overwrite=yes \
    --archive='leave' \

If this works and there are indeed some bugs I am not aware of is then a workaround that might work: you can simply copy the processed data manually into the QuNex study:

mkdir -p $HCP_DIR
cp -R $RAWDIR/fmriresults01/HCD0001305_V1_MR $HCP_DIR

This should give you the processed folders (MNINonLinear, T1w, T2w) inside the $HCP_DIR. And you should be able to start running diffusion.

3/ If there is a bug, is there a way that you could zip one session both the unprocessed version inside $RAWDIR/imagingcollection01 and the processed one inside $RAWDIR/fmriresults01 and upload it somewhere where I can reach them? This will be by far for me the easiest to debug. I am unable to reproduce this on my end right now.

Best, Jure

Dear Jure,

many thanks for your helpful answer! I managed to copy all the files and the data was read in well (below my session_hcp.txt file). However when I run

qunex_container hcp_diffusion --sessionsfolder="$STUDYDIR/sessions"\
    --sessions=$subjectid \
    --batchfile="$STUDYDIR/processing/batch.txt" --overwrite="yes" \
    --hcp_dwi_nogpu \
    --hcp_dwi_phasepos='PA' --hcp_dwi_phaseneg='AP'

I still get the following error:

Session id: HCD2322335_V1_MR 
[started on Monday, 12. February 2024 18:23:25]
Running HCP DiffusionPreprocessing Pipeline [HCPStyleData] ...

---> ERROR: No pos direction files were found! Both images with pos and neg directions are required for hcp_diffusion. If you have data with only one direction, you can use dwi_legacy_gpu.
---> ERROR: Could not find gradient distortion coefficients file: NONE            ... DWI specific gradient distortion coefficients file or NONE..
---> Using image specific EchoSpacing: 0.6899980000

am I still missing something?

I greatly appreciate your help, thank you a lot!

One possibility could be that the folder with the study is not visible to the system in the container, try adding the bind parameter to the qunex_container call.


Also, please provide the full qunex_container call, the container parameter is also missing in your example, just so I know whether you are using Singularity or docker.

Hi Leon,

Did we manage to help you out on this, or do you still have any questions or issues that we can help you with?

Best, Jure
