Using Dynamic Contrast-Enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging Data to Constrain a Positron Emission Tomography Kinetic Model: Theory and Simulations

Figure 2

An example of simulated tissue curves and the fits provided by (11). These panels represent 25 voxels with (a) no error in the DCE-MRI parameters, (b) 5% error, (c) 10% error, and (d) 15% error. The AIF used in these simulations was measured from the left ventricle of a mouse, which results in some noise even with no error in the DCE-MRI parameters (see panel (a)).
