Thank you very much for this fantastic software.

Recently, I have a problem where the SUV cannot be obtained in some dicom images. Although, all the information required were there, such as weight, total dose, half-life, study time, series time, acquisition time,content time and radiopharmaceutical start time.
Based on the SUV equation used in RadiAnt, can you explain which specific parameters involved to calculate the delay between the injection time and the scan start time?Thank you very much.

Thank you for your kind words!

The delay is calculated between 0018,1072 and 0008,0031.

Note, these are also the required values of specific tags:

0028,0051 = ATTN or DECY
0054,1102 = START or ADMIN
