Construction of a Whole Body Blood Flow Model for Use in Positron Emission Tomography Imaging with [15O]Water


A whole body blood flow model (WBBFM) was developed and tested using STELLA II, an icon-driven mathematical simulation software package. The WBBFM uses parallel chambers to represent gray and white areas of the brain, body organs such as lungs, heart (right and left halves), injection site, and blood sampling sites. Input values to the WBBFM include organ… (More)
