blo2kbq 3.8.1 © 1994-2012 by Turku PET Centre
Program for extraction and calibration of blood TACs measured using
automatic blood sampling systems (ABSS, "blood pump") (1).
Usage: blo2kbq [Options] <Blood pump file>
Calibration coefficients for ABSS and well-counter should be specified
with calibration file (2), given with option -c.
If calibration file is given, then the isotope name
(C-11, F-18, Ga-68, Ge-68 or O-15)
must be entered (if not correctly specified inside pump file) so that
the correct well-counter calibration factor can be used.
Data is corrected for physical decay; isotope can optionally be
given with this option.
If ABSS measurement was not started at the time of injection,
the delay t (sec) must be entered with option -start=<t>. If data
collection was started before injection, enter a negative value for t;
activities before that time are removed from the output data.
With option -v activities are divided with the blood density 1.06
to get kBq/g values, rather than kBq/mL. If blood density is different
from default 1.06 g/mL, it can be entered after -v.
Sample times are written in minutes (in seconds by default).
-l -r -t
The counts or activity values are printed as an average of the two
channels by default. With options -l and -r the left (ch2) or right (ch1)
column is shown. With option -t both columns are shown.
For reading of the measurement date, local time zone can be used with
option -z instead of Greenwich main time (default).
Filename for corrected TAC data, can be entered with option -o.
If not given, then files are written to the directory where input file
was. Calibrated file is named *.kbq and non-calibrated *.dat by default.
-s[canditronics], -a[llogg], -allogg2
ABSS produces device-specific file formats; this option is needed
if format can not be correctly identified from file extension
(*.lis, *.bld, *.alg, or *.txt).
