svar4tac - tpcclib 0.8.0 © 2023 by Turku PET Centre

Program for adding Gaussian noise to dynamic PET time-activity curve (TAC)
or TACs using equation
  TAC_noisy(t) = TAC(t) + (CV/100)*TAC(t)*G(0,1) ,
G(0,1) is a pseudo random number from a Gaussian distribution
with zero mean and SD of one.
Usage: svar4tac [Options] tacfile CV outputfile 
 -minsd=<Minimum SD>
     Based on CV only the samples with little or no activity would have
     very little or no noise. With this option at least the given noise
     level (SD) will be added to all samples.
     N noisy copies of each TAC are made (by default just one).
     If CV is set to zero, this option can be used to make multiple copies
     from the TACs.
     When used with option -x=<N>, copies are written in separate files
     named as (*_NNNN.*).
 -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.
Frame durations or weights are not used, even if available in the TAC file.
