Guidelines for Multicentre Studies

Recommendations for designing and conducting longitudinal multi-centre brain imaging studies: (1) planning, (2) defining the imaging endpoints, developing an imaging manual and managing the workflow, (3) performing a dummy run and testing the analysis methods, (4) acquiring the scans, (5) anonymising and transferring the data, (6) monitoring quality, and (7) using structured data and sharing data.
