should be performed and the aortic diameter should be measured in reproducible anatomic positions, in a plane perpendicular to the direction of flow.
Despite having the capability in this study to use multiplanar reformatting
to interrogate the 1 mm dataset, we opted not to use this function so that the two datasets were analyzed and compared in the same axial plane.
Studies from 16-and 32-slice scanners are distributed in manageable 3D volumes that allow sculpting, zooming and 360-degree rotation of images, as well as, MIP (maximum intensity projection) and MPR (multiplanar reformatting
(4,5) CT, including multiplanar reformatting
(MPR), as was undertaken in this particular case, has shown its utility in defining the features and extent of both osseous and soft tissue involvement of this pro-cess.

(MPR) in the CT-diagnosis of pulmonary embolism [in German].
