Dynamic PET (positron emission tomography) imaging technique allows image-wide quantification of physiologic and biochemical parameters. Compartment modeling is the most popular approach for receptor binding studies. However, current compartment-model based methods often either require the accurate arterial blood measurements as the input function or assume the existence of a reference region. To obviate the need for the input function or a reference region, in this paper, we propose to… CONTINUE READING
