Calculation of accurate time-integrated activity coefficients (TIACs) is desirable in nuclear medicine dosimetry. The accuracy of the calculated TIACs is highly dependent on the fit function. However, systematic studies of determining a good function for peptide-receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) in different patients have not been reported in the literature. The aim of this study was to individually determine the best function for the calculation of TIACs in tumor and kidneys using a model selection based on the goodness of fit criteria and Corrected Akaike Information Criterion (AICc). The data used in this study was pharmacokinetic data of 111In-DOTATATE in tumor and kidneys obtained from 4 PRRT patients. Eleven functions with various parameterizations were formulated to describe the biokinetic data of 111In-DOTATATE in tumor and kidneys. The model selection was performed by choosing the best function from the function with sufficient goodness of fit based on the smallest AICc. Based on the results of model selection, function A1e-(λ1+λpℎys)t was selected as the best function for all tumor and kidneys in patients with meningioma tumors. By using this function, the calculated of TIACs could be more accurate for future patients with meningioma tumor.
