dftratio - tpcclib 0.7.3 © 2019 by Turku PET Centre

Calculate the regional tissue to reference tissue ratio, which is often
used as a robust and model independent index of receptor availability.
By default, ratio of AUCs is calculated as
 
         Regional AUC(t1..t2) 
Ratio = --------------------- 
        Reference AUC(t1..t2) 
 
Data concentration units are cancelled out from the ratio. Therefore
the result is the same if it is calculated from original radioactivity
concentrations or SUV TACs (SUV ratio, SUR).
 
Usage: dftratio [options] ttacfile reference t1 t2 resultfile
 
Reference can be given either as the name or number of the reference TAC
inside the TTAC file or the name of file containing the reference TAC
Start and end times (t1 and t2) must be given in minutes, if TAC file(s)
do not contain time units.
 
Options:
 -bound
     Bound/free-ratio is calculated instead of Total/free;
     reference region TAC is first subtracted from other regional TACs.
 -max
     Bound TAC maximum value is searched between start and end times,
     and Bound/free ratio is calculated at this time point; this should
     not be used with noisy data.
 -rat=<Filename>
     Ratio curve is saved for plotting.
 -h, --help
     Display usage information on standard output and exit.
 -v, --version
     Display version and compile information on standard output and exit.
 -d[n], --debug[=n], --verbose[=n]
     Set the level (n) of debugging messages and listings.
 -q, --quiet
     Suppress displaying normal results on standard output.
 -s, --silent
     Suppress displaying anything except errors.
