simimyoc - tpcclib 0.8.0 © 2023 by Turku PET Centre
Simulate dynamic PET image of heart. Approach is very simplistic and
only applicable to software testing and basic simulations:
only one image plane is produced by default, containing a ring representing
myocardial muscle surrounding LV cavity.
Usage: simimyoc [options] tacfile imgfile
TAC data file must contain the time-activity curves of myocardial muscle,
blood in LV cavity, and optionally background surrounding the heart.
Sample times in TAC file are used as time frames of the simulated image.
-dim=<Image x and y dimension in pixels>
Set image dimension; by default 128.
Simulation in 3D (note that computation may take time).
-pxlsize=<Voxel size (mm)>
Set image voxel size; by default 1 mm.
Set image resolution; by default 8 mm.
-thickness=<Myocardial wall thickness (mm)>
Set (relaxed) myocardial wall thickness; by default 10 mm.
-diameter=<Max LV cavity diameter (mm)>
Set maximal LV cavity diameter; by default 52 mm.
-diamin=<Min LV cavity diameter (fraction)>
Set minimum LV cavity diameter as fraction of max diameter;
by default 0.62.
Save heart beat phases separately as image planes;
not applicable with option -3D.
Display usage information on standard output and exit.
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.
Suppress displaying normal results on standard output.
Suppress displaying anything except errors.
