Module Type & Category
|Program title||SUV Factor Calculator|
|Program description||This command line interface module takes a PET DICOM series and creates a Real World Value Mapping (RWVM) file including 4 types of Standardized Uptake Value conversion factors (SUVbw, SUVlbm, SUVbsa, SUVibw).|

Use Cases, Examples
The patient size correction factors are summarized here, where weight is in kilograms and height is in centimeters.
- males & females: weight
- males: 1.10 * weight - 128 * (weight/height)^2
- females: 1.07 * weight - 148 * (weight/height)^2
- males & females: weight^0.425 * height^0.725 * 0.007184
- males: 48.0 + 1.06 * (height - 152)
- females: 45.5 + 0.91 * (height - 152)
