There has been a lack of statistical analysis to determine which kinetic model
is best suited for analysis of the wrist. This study aims to rectify this by
comparing the most commonly used models: Modified Tofts (MT), Two Compartment
Uptake (2CU), and Two Compartment Exchange (2CX). Goodness of fit is analyzed by reduced chi squared, while statistical signifance between models is determined by wilcoxon signed-rank.
