Are you running automatic arterial blood sampling in a simultaneous PET/MR scanner? Are you struggling to cope with the high-noise data from the blood sampler? If you answered YES to both questions than this research if for you. We extended an existing pipeline of blood modelling (called “MultiBlood”) to the analysis of arterial blood data obtained from MR-compatible samplers. We show that this method can filter out the excess of noise and return blood data time-activity courses comparable with the previous generation of blood samplers.
