In the case of both TOF and TPSF, time-of-flight information was treated as an additional dimension of time-of-flight bin in the sinogram space.
In this study, to ensure good contrast convergence and then the minimum noise property, the number of EM-equivalent iterations of 200 (corresponding to the iteration number of 20) was chosen for the OSEM method while the number of EM-equivalent iterations of 100 (corresponding to the iteration number of 10) was chosen for the TOF and TPSF methods.
As shown in the figure, the EM-equivalent iterations of 100 ensured the convergence of the kinetic parameters for both TOF and TPSF cases.
Figure 5 showed the representative coronal PET images reconstructed using FBP, OSEM, TOF, and TPSF, respectively.
The NIPF, IPAP and TPSF thus call for "developmental tariff-setting" through the International Trade and Administration Commission (ITAC), in order to incentivise more value-added production and exports by raising the effective rate of protection on final outputs.
Over the past two decades, various policy pronouncements by the South African government including the 'Butterfly Strategy' of the 1990s, the 'Global Economic Strategy' of 2001, the TPSF of 2010, and the current 'National Export Strategy' under consideration have underlined the importance of diversifying South Africa's trade and investment partners.
A major focus of South Africa in its bilateral engagements, and even as BRICS Chair during 2012, (7) has been to shape an alternative paradigm for SouthSouth trade, which the TPSF formally conceptualises as "...
23 July 2013 -- The controlling shareholders of PT Tiga Pilar Sejahtera Food Tbk said they have signed a definitive agreement with KKR (NYSE: KKR) under which the controlling shareholders would sell approximately 9.5 % stake in TPSF
to certain funds advised by KKR Asset Management LLC.
Ex vivo analysis and in vivo TPSF curve evaluation suggested the presence of mAT-[MASC.sup.eGFP]-DiD in the leg opposite the injection site, supporting the hypothesis that the cells reached, possibly through systemic distribution, distant sites.
Abbreviations mAT-MASC: Murine adipose tissue-derived multipotent adult stem cells i.m.: Intramuscular NC: Normalized counts NIR: Near infrared TD: Time domain ROI: Region of interest qPCR: Quantitative PCR TPSF: Temporal point spread function ns: Nanoseconds.
