simimyoc - tpcclib 0.7.6 © 2020 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.
 
Options:
 -dim=<Image x and y dimension in pixels>
     Set image dimension; by default 128.
 -3D
     Simulation in 3D (note that computation may take time).
 -pxlsize=<Voxel size (mm)>
     Set image voxel size; by default 1 mm.
 -fwhm=<FWHM (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.
 -bif=<Image filename>
     Save heart beat phases separately as image planes;
     not applicable with option -3D.
 -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.
