Abstract

Positron Emission Tomography using 2-[18F]-2deoxy-D-glucose as radiotracer (FDG-PET) is currently one of the most frequently applied functional imaging methods in clinical applications. The interpretation of FDG-PET data requires sophisticated mathematical approaches able to exploit the dynamical information contained in this kind of data. Most of these approaches are formulated within the framework of compartmental analysis, which connects the experimental nuclear data with unknown tracer coefficients measuring the effectiveness of the tracer metabolism by means of Cauchy systems of ordinary differential equations. This paper provides a coincise overview of linear compartmental methods, focusing on the analytical solution of the forward compartmental problem and on the specific issues concerning the corresponding compartmental inverse problem
