Generates dummy medical image data with realistic headers to be used in image handling tests

Project description Supported Python versions Latest Version

Generates dummy medical images, with junk image data but realistic headers, to test imaging handling pipelines


Medimage4tests is available on PyPI so to install, simply use pip

$ pip3 install medimages4tests

or include in your package’s test_requires.


Create a pytest fixture consisting of a dummy image with field-map metadata in DICOM format

# Import medimages4tests generator functions
from import get_image

# Return generated images in pytest fixtures (or alternative test framework)
def ge_dicom_fmap():
    return get_image()

Create a dummy NIfTI image

import numpy
# Import `get_image` function
from medimages4tests.dummy.nifti import get_image

# Create dummy nifti image of 10x10x10 containing all ones
def ones_nifti():
    return get_image(
        data=numpy.ones((10, 10, 10))

Access real T1-weighted from

from medimages4tests.mri.neuro.t1w import get_image

def t1w_nifti():
    return get_image(sample="ds004130-ON01016")
