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> Options: -c=<filename> Calibration coefficients for ABSS and well-counter should be specified with calibration file (2), given with option -c. -i=<isotope> 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. -d[=<isotope>] Data is corrected for physical decay; isotope can optionally be given with this option. -start=<t> 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. -v[=<blood density>] 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. -m[in] 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. -z For reading of the measurement date, local time zone can be used with option -z instead of Greenwich main time (default). -o=<filename> 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). -h or --help Print this message and exit --version or --build Print software build information and exit --silent Program works silently, printing only error and warning messages --verbose Program prints more information about what it is doing. Example: blo2kbq -i=O -d=O -c=S:/Lab/plasma/bsampler_calibration/pump_cal.dat sr452_blo.bld References: 1. 2.
