Abstract: The traditional quantitative study using tracer kinetic modeling requires repeated blood sampling to measure the tracer concentration in plasma. It is invasive, time-consuming and costly. We propose a new approach to estimate physiological parameters for dynamic Positron Emission Tomography (PET) without taking blood samples. With the new approach, the quantification problem is first converted to a discrete blind system identification problem. A multi-channel blind identification technique is applied to estimate the required system parameters. A Monte Carlo simulation is carried out for the proposed approach on estimating the regional cerebral metabolic rate of glucose (rCMRGlc) with the fluoro-deoxy-2-glucose (FDG) model. The results show that the proposed approach can estimate the required physiological parameters in a comparable manner to that of traditional invasive approaches
