Hi all,

Nice ISMRM paper about a standard for MRI k-space (before reconstruction) data.
Is there a potential nomenclature issue that they refer to as this standard as the “ISMRM raw data format”?
Especially for MIDS?

BTW: I have good news about ASL-BIDS: Nature-Scientific Data accepted our paper! Will update you soon

Cheers, Henk

ISMRM raw data format is a multi-year effort that with the blessing of ISMRM and already interfaces with substantial reconstruction tools, such as
I don't know anything about MIDS, but if MIDS is supposed to deal with raw k-space data, the designers of MIDS really should be in directly communication with the ISMRM raw data group to make sure they are actually adding value.

Dear Dan,

Of course I agree with you, my point was just that the nomenclature “raw data” is used by two widely used standards in a very different way; and if we should somehow deal with this.
