tacdecay - tpcclib 0.8.0 © 2023 by Turku PET Centre

Correction of PET TAC files for physical decay, or removing decay correction.
Usage: tacdecay [Options] tacfile [outputfile]
     Correct the data for radioactive decay (on, default), or remove
     decay correction (off).
 -i=<Isotope code>
     Most TAC files do not contain the isotope code, thus it can be
     specified with this option.
     Accepted isotope codes are for example F-18, C-11, and O-15.
 -sec or -min
     Sample times are known to be in seconds or minutes, but is not
     specified or is wrong in TAC file.
 -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.
Example 1: remove the correction for physical decay from a F-18 study,
           writing non-corrected data into a new file.
  tacdecay -decay=off -i=F-18 a123ap.bld a123ap_nodecay.bld
Example 2: correct the TAC data for radioactive decay, overwriting the data.
  tacdecay -decay=on -i=C-11 ia456dy1.tac
