Determination of Slice Thickness in Diagnostic Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Published By:National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA)
This standards publication provides a method for determining the slice thickness of proton images. Both the typical and the typically thinnest slices in routine clinical use for a particular system are determined at one location within the specification volume and at only one of the three orthogonal orientations (transverse, sagittal, or coronal). Imaging types and conditions not addressed by this standard include spectroscopy, chemical shift imaging, and warped slices.
