imghead - tpcclib 0.7.6 © 2020 by Turku PET Centre

Program calculates the average TAC from all pixels in a PET image or scan
file in ECAT 6.3 or 7 format, or PET image in NIfTI-1 or Analyze format,
to be used as 'head curve' or 'count-rate' file in time delay correction.
Decay correction is not changed: if image or sinogram is decay corrected,
head curve will be decay corrected, and vice versa.
 
Usage: imghead [Options] petfile headcurve
 
Options:
 -thr[=<Threshold-%>,<<Nr of frames>|<a>|<fh>>]
     TAC is calculated from pixels exceeding the specified threshold level,
     or 10% level with only -thr.
     Specified number or default five last frames are used in determining
     threshold level; alternatively, with 'a' all frames, or with 'fh'
     the first half of frames are used in thresholding.
     Without -thr option all pixels are included.
 -min | -sec
     TAC times are written in minutes or seconds (default).
 -keepnegat
     Frames with negative mean value are not set to zero.
 -sum | -cps | -peakmax | -framemax
     By default, mean of all or thresholded pixels is calculated;
     with option -sum the sum of pixel values is reported, or
     with option -cps the total radioactivity (not concentration), or
     with option -peakmax the TAC of pixel which has the max peak value, or
     with option -framemax the TAC with values of max at each frame.
