tac2suv - tpcclib 0.7.7 © 2021 by Turku PET Centre

Converts TAC radioactivity concentrations into standardized uptake values
(SUV, DUR, DAR) or PID/L, using administered radioligand dose and subject
weight. Injected dose must be given in units MBq at the time of injection.
Subject weight must be given in kg or litres.
Instead of SUV, the percentage of injected dose per tissue volume 
(PID/L, %i.d./L) is calculated, if the subject weight is set to 0.
 
Usage: tac2suv [Options] tacfile dose weight [outputfile]
 
Options:
 -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.
 
TAC file must be correct for physical decay to the injection time.
If the units of radioactivity concentrations are not specified inside
the TAC file, the units are assumed to be in kBq/mL;
units can be specified by adding line(s) to the end of the TAC file,
for example:
# unit := Bq/cc
# time_unit := sec
 
If name for output file is not given, then TAC file is overwritten.
 
Example:
     tac2suv uia15.dat 330 77 uia15suv.dat
