blotimes 1.1.0 © 2006-2009 by Turku PET Centre
Correct or list the sample times in Scanditronics or GEMS on-line blood
sampler (blood pump) data (1).
Correct decay correction will bepossible only if blood sampling start time
is correct versus PET scan start time.
Usage: blotimes <Sampler datafile> [New sampling start time as hh:mm:ss]
Print this message and exit

Program works silently, printing only warnings and error messages.
Program prints lots of information about what it is doing.
In Scanditronics data files the correct sampling start time is in the file
headers; however, in old Scanditronics data files the headers do not contain
time, but it is read from the first sample data line.
In GEMS data files the time in file headers is not the sampling start time,
but time is read from the first sample data line.
If new sampling time is given and it is different than the current sampling
start time, then all sample times in the sampler data file are changed.
If the new sampling start time is not given, the program lists information
on current sample times on the screen.
Example 1a: Blood sampler times are listed:
Example 1b: PET image scan start time is listed:
Example 1c: Obviously, blood sampler clock was not synchronized with PET,
therefore blood sample times must be corrected to PET scan start time:
