slice thickness


Also found in: Acronyms.

slice thickness

An MRI term for the thickness of an imaging slice. Because slice profiles are not sharply edged, the distance between the points at half the sensitivity of the maximum (full width at half maximum) is used to determine thickness.

An MR venogram was performed using 2D time of flight (TOF) with slice thickness of 2 mm with slice gap of 1-2 mm.
The critical interplay between slice thickness (spatial resolution), and sequence selection is always offset by scan time.
All this adds up to consistent slice thickness, accurate portion weights, minimal giveaway and faster payback.
These parameters are: (i) geometric accuracy, (ii) high-contrast spatial resolution, (iii) slice thickness accuracy, (iv) slice position accuracy, (v) image intensity uniformity, (vi) percent signal ghosting, and (vii) low-contrast object detectability.
3 mm), slice thickness = 5 mm, gap = 1mm, number of excitations (NEX) = 2, and number of slices = 24.
Slice thickness may vary greatly depending on the equipment and the commercially available software.
