The benefits from mixed model inference in pharmacokinetic models of DCE-MRI by means of Akaike and the Bayesian information criterion is investigated. Data is simulated based on published mouse and human AIFs and the MMID4, that approximates true tissue physiology. K trans estimates are shown to benefit in accuracy and precision for a variety of investigated tissues.
