Append Data

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

Getting There

Three different methods exist for appending data. Please note: An initial data set must be loaded into the Data Manager prior to Appending Data.

The first method is to use the Open input thumbnail in the Main Window.

The second method is to go to "Append Data" under the File menu.

The third method is to use the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+N" to load input 1 and "Ctrl+Shift+N" to load additional inputs. For more on keyboard shortcuts in VQ, please see Keyboard Shortcuts.


Selection of the "append data" option opens a navigation window from which the input data set may be selected.

VivoQuant is capable of handling a variety of file formats. The default options include:

  1. DICOM: *.dcm, *.dicom, 1.*
