Computation of parametric image of blood and distribution volume (Vb and Vt)
from dynamic PET image in ECAT, NIfTI, or Analyze format applying
one-tissue compartmental model with arterial blood input.
The compartmental models are transformed to general linear least squares
functions, which are solved using Lawson-Hanson non-negative least squares
(NNLS) algorithm (1). Vt is estimated directly without division (2, 3, 4).
Dynamic PET image and plasma time-activity curve (PTAC) must be corrected
for decay to the tracer injection time.
Usage: imglhbdv [Options] btacfile imgfile vbfile vtfile
     Pixels with AUC less than (threshold/100 x BTAC AUC) are set to zero
     default is 0%
 -end=<Fit end time (min)>
     Use data from 0 to end time; by default, model is fitted to all frames.
 -max=<Max value>
     Upper limit for Vt values; by default 1000.
     Vt includes Vb; by default not.
     Set Vt to zero in pixels which seem to have irreversible uptake.
     Dynamic image with Vb correction is saved.
 -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.
The unit of voxel values in the Vt image is (ml blood)/(ml tissue).
