Estimation of organ input function and plasma clearance from the cardiac curve in dynamic scintigraphy

Abstract

A theoretical description of the relationship between the count rate detected in the cardiac region of interest and the arterial organ input function in dynamic scintigraphy is presented. It is shown that, provided the time-activity curve for the heart is corrected for extra-cardiac and unlabelled activity, it is proportional to the arterial organ input… (More)
