t _{0.5} = half time for mono-exponential approximation to the early part of the DTPA clearance curve;t _{0.5} F= half time for fast component of bi-exponential DTPA clearance curve;t _{0.5} S= half time for slow component of bi-exponential DTPA clearance curve;f F = fraction of tracer cleared by fast component.
