Re: Imaginary concentrations

The OFV is computed using all observations. If you imagine an
observation at time 0 then it will change the OFV. So my advice is not
to imagine concentrations with MDV=0 but just use the concentrations you
really measured.

The question was that if i treated the T0 concentration as a MDV, the MOFV was quite different from treating it as a real obesrved concentration.
