metabcor - tpcclib 0.7.6 © 2020 by Turku PET Centre

Calculate TACs of authentic (unchanged) tracer and radioactive
metabolite(s) from measured plasma TAC and fractions of authentic tracer.
 
Usage: metabcor [Options] plasmafile fractionfile
 
Fraction file can have either of two formats:
 1) it can contain the sample times (min), and the fraction(s) of authentic
    tracer, and optionally the fractions of different metabolites; or
 2) parameters of a mathematical function fitted to the fraction curves.
 
By default, result TACs are written in files named as *_pure.* and
*_met.*, and if several metabolites exist, the following as *_met2.*
and *_met3.*
 
Options:
 -fnpure=<filename>
     Replace default filename parent tracer TAC.
 -fnmet=<filename>
     Replace default filename for the plasma metabolite TAC.
 -fnmet2=<filename>
     Replace default filename the second plasma metabolite TAC.
 -fnmet3=<filename>
     Replace default filename  the 3rd plasma metabolite TAC.
 -pure=<id>
     The result file is named by adding specified id text before file
     extension, instead of the default '_pure'.
 -met=<id>
     The result file is named by adding specified id text before file
     name extension, instead of the default '_met'.
 -met2=<id>
     The result file is named by adding specified id text before file
     name extension, instead of the default '_met2'.
 -met3=<id>
     The result file is named by adding specified id text before file
     name extension, instead of the default '_met3'.
 -h, --help

 -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.
