Dear colleagues!
I am new with Deep Learning and I am having problems in introducing DICOM data as input into imagedatastore in order to train a network.
I have followed the steps described here to "create an ImageDatastore from a collection of DICOM files".
I am able to load the .mat files and I see de 3D volumes for each case (I have 2 classes, each with three 3D volume data sets)
The problem is when I try to "trainNetwork", I get an error:
" Error using (line 77)
Unable to read file:
Any help please???
(I have multiple clinical datasets. Each dataset is stored in a different folder and it is represented by multiple slices)
Thank you in advance!

It seems that you are unable to load the mat file into the network. Your input is in mat file format. So, create a custom read function which read the files in that specified format and then pass it to the network. For example, call the read function after declaring the image datastore as given below:
Define the read function as per your file. For example, consider a function given below:
function I = readFcn_mat(filename)
I = load(filename);
I = I.Input; %%%%change here as per your dataset
Hope it will helps.

Thank you very much for your answer!!
I am trying to do as you said but I don't understand the line
"I = I.Input; %%%%change here as per your dataset"
Did you mean
"I = I.V;" ??
Thank you!!

Yes, if the input data is stored in variable V then it will be
I = I.V;
