▶ Initialize

This function resets the Multi Slice Mode setting to default values.

▶ Ref. Plane (A/B/C Plane)


This function allows the user to select the Reference Plane image of a Multi Slice
image to view the image in a desired plane.
Select OH to verify where the selected slice is located in the volume data.

▶ Rot. Z (0/90/180/270)
This function rotates the Multi Slice image by the selected value. If the mode
changes or the Reference Plane is modified, the current Rot. Z is reset to 0.
The rotation will be performed along the Z-axis as illustrated below.

▶ Zoom

This function allows the user to zoom into the Multi Slice image up to 400%. Use
the mouse to select the slide button and make appropriate adjustments.
▶ Post Processing
This function allows the user to produce a desired Multi Slice image. Images that
have been post-processed are not applied to Volume CT.

- DynamicMR: Improves the image quality by maximizing the contrast and


sharpening the borders of the Multi Slice image.
- Invert: Inverts the black and white of the Multi Slice image.
- Auto Contrast: Auto-adjusts the Multi Slice image contrast. This calculates
the image histogram and stretches the contrast distribution; little or no
effects may be seen for images with even contrast distribution.
- Threshold: Sets the threshold for the Multi Slice image. This removes the
unnecessary levels of brightness from the image.
- Sharpen: Sets the sharpness of the borders for the Multi Slice image. Use
this to obtain sharper borders or a clearer image when using a blurred
image. Setting the value higher results in a sharper image.
- Gradient Mask Image (Top/Bottom/Left/Right): Adjusts the
brightness of desired areas in the Multi Slice image. To use this function,
choose [Top], [Bottom], [Left], [Right] or nothing.
- Flip Left/Right, Flip Top/Bottom: Flips the Multi Slice image horizontally
or vertically.

- Image Setting: Sets the Chroma Map and Gamma values.


• Click Return To Main to return to the Multi Slice Mode screen.
• Select a button under Palette to apply desired colors on the display
image.
• Adjust the [Pos] value and [Bias] value for Post Curve to adjust the
Gamma value.

▶ Rotation
This function adjusts the Rotate X, Rotate Y, and Rotate Z slide buttons in order to
rotate the Multi Slice image. Rotating the selected reference plane also rotates all
other planes in the same manner.

▶ Select Image
This function allows the user to choose an image to view by selecting Previous
Image or Next Image. The selected image is indicated by a yellow border.

▶ Select Page
This function allows the user to choose a different page of images to view by
selecting Previous Page or Next Page. Page range varies depending on the
Display Layout.

▶ Cut Depth

This function sets the Multi Slice interval. The interval for slice images can be user-
configured and is represented by an internal operation value by default. “Cut
Depth” indicated here refers to the interval of each slice within the volume data; it
does not represent the actual anatomic location in the scanned target.

3D XI™ - Volume CT™

▶ The Volume CT Mode expresses the Coronal / Sagittal / Axial images in the
selected 3D locations for easy identification of plane image information.

Select to start the Volume CT Mode. Select Cube or Cross under


Display Format to select a desired Volume CT format.

▶ Displays the respective surface according to the location of the image selected in
Multi-Slice view. If the Front/Top/Left side of the volume is nearer, the image is
displayed from the direction of the Multi Slice view. If the Back/Bottom/Right side
of the volume is nearer, the image is displayed from the opposite direction of the
Multi Slice view. When displaying the location for the selected slice, the image is
displayed as slightly slanted. This is to simultaneously show all the plane images
seen from different directions.
▶ Cube Volume CT
This function identifies the information for the external plane image neighboring the
cube.

- Boundary: Toggles the boundary of Cube Volume CT on or off. The


boundary expresses the external area for the total 3D volume.
