Dummy images for software testing

Hello everyone!

I’m working on some python software to perform some analysis on brain scans and wanted to add some testing to the code. I would ask if anyone has any tips on testing software with neuroimaging scans in python (I am using pytest for the tests) and/or if anyone knows any “dummy” dataset that I can use to perform such tests.

Thanks in advance to everyone

For dummy datasets, have you searched the image database? I’ve filtered on brain datasets in the link below:

@alfonsomedela @Kenan_Morani @Thanossrs @adamc do you have any suggestions for software testing in Python?

Thanks for the suggestion. Since the functions i wanted to test are relatively easy I used a matrix of ones to test the expected results, since the results could be computed also by hand with such matrix.
