Calculate SUV from TACSource:
Calculate the standardized uptake value (SUV) time-activity curve from a tac object, the participant's weight, and the tracer dose. The weight must be in kg, and the tracer dose must be specified. The dose is converted to MBq, the tac is converted to kBq/cc, and the final SUV units are thus in g/cc. Aside from the tac object, the remaining parameters should be left NULL if the required data is in the tac object attributes (as can be done with batch_load().
