Incorporation of MRI-AIF information for improved kinetic modelling of dynamic PET data

Published: 29 July 2014
We have shown that information from simultaneous MRI-AIF can reduce the bias on Ki estimates and multiple blood samples might not be necessary, as the scaling method with one blood sample performed better when a parameter reflecting the early part of the MRI-AIF is included.
