Non-regression: no changes in disc volume at all in sagittal and axial view
A cadaveric analysis of this technique demonstrated only 0.8 mm error in displacements that were greater than 10 mm and 1.5 mm error in displacements less than 10 mm, with excellent intra-class correlation coefficient (0.974) for the axial view compared to 0.257 for the AP and oblique views.
Next, the roof of the sinus was carefully removed to gain access to the sphenoidal sinus from above (axial view); and in all specimens but 5 (n=40), the septation was then investigated.

The image was rotated to align the knee similar to how a radiation technologist would align a patient: for the axial view, the image was aligned to provide a skyline view, where the patella is viewed from the superior looking downward (Figure 2(a)in patients, this requires flexing the knee to be able to view the patella from the top; in creating the pseudo-X-ray, the viewpoint was rotated about the patella until the patellar ridge was aligned with the z-axis, i.e., coming directly in/out of the imageFigure 2(a)); for the sagittal view, the image was rotated until the femoral condyles were aligned, i.e., overlapping, as they would in a typical sagittal X-ray (Figure 2(b)).
