The second data set loaded into VivoQuant is called the Input data and refers to the SPECT data. When loading multiple data sets from the Data browser, VivoQuant recognizes SPECT/PET data and automatically sets it as the input file. For dual isotope imaging, two input data sets can be added simultaneously. VivoQuant is capable of handling several file formats.
