To mathematically model multiple indicator dilution (MID) data for the purpose of estimating parameters descriptive of indicator-tissue interactions, it is necessary to account for the effects of the distribution of capillary transit times, hc(t) In this paper, we present an efficient approach for incorporating hc(t) in the mathematical modeling of MID data. In this method, the solution of the model partial differential equations obtained at different locations along the model capillary having… CONTINUE READING
