The aim of this paper is to present EMATA: Extraction and Modeling of Arterial inputs for Tracer kinetic Analysis, an open-source and easy-to-use MATLAB toolbox which automatically performs IDIF extraction directly from [18F]FDG PET images, and additionally includes a PVE correction procedure that does not require any blood sampling. Moreover, to assess its generalizability and present example outputs, the results obtained by applying EMATA to two different datasets are also presented.
