Introduction to Modeling in PET

For the data processing in PKIN will be helpful to understand the basic modeling concepts in PET. The following sections present short introductions of compartment and reference models. Other model types are described in the PKIN Model Reference section.

For in-depth understanding of PET Kinetic Modeling we strongly recommend the PMOD users to attend one of the excellent yearly PET Pharmacokinetics Courses. These courses include theory as well as practical work and are organized by the the top experts in the domain. The 2013 course is schedule in Shanghai (May 17-19, 2013). Two other worthwhile courses PET Experimental Design and Practical Data Analysis (London, Feb 11-13, 2013) and Basic Kinetic Modeling in Molecular Imaging (Copenhagen, March 18-22, 2013) are announced on the InMind project website.
