DFT TAC file format
DFT is a multi-purpose ASCII data file format for regional tissue time-activity curves (TTACs), blood or plasma TACs (PTACs), and fractions of authentic tracer and its metabolites in plasma. Analysis tools developed in TPC can read DFT files (as well as a few other TAC formats). Tools for processing TAC files in DFT and other formats are downloadable in TPC download pages.
TAC files may contain comment lines starting with character ‘#’. These lines may also contain useful, or outdated, information on data units etc. In bash the comment lines can be removed with command:
sed '/^#/ d' < input.dat > output.dat
