Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS) provides a valuable tool to organise brain imaging data into a clear and easy standard directory structure. Moreover, BIDS is widely supported by the scientific community and has been established as a powerful standard for medical imaging management. Nonetheless, the original BIDS is restricted to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain, limiting its implantation to other techniques and anatomical regions. We developed Medical Imaging Data Structure (MIDS), conceived to extend BIDS methodology to other anatomical regions and multiple imaging systems in these areas. The MIDS standard was developed to store and manage medical images as an extension of BIDS. It allows the user to handily save studies of multiple anatomical regions and imaging techniques. Besides, MIDS improves the classification of multiple images within the structure, allowing the possibility to unify them in a single study to apply on them preprocessing or artificial intelligence algorithms. Finally, the results generated are saved in the derivatives folder.
