  • Causa
    Risk of measurement error when images are rotated at the time of reconstruction. there is the potential for volume errors of -50% and length errors of -29%, depending on the degree to which the images are rotated. this problem occurs when images are rotated at the time of reconstruction by the scanner in non-90 degree increments of the transverse/axial plane (rotation around the z-axis), while not being simultaneously rotated around the x-axis and y-axis. for these scans, the images will shrink. the severity of the shrinking is dependent on the degree (or extent) of image rotation. the maximum error is seen with a 45 degree rotation which results in a length measurement being under-reported by 29% and a volume measurement being under-reported by 50%.

Ensure that all measurements associated with the error described in the FSN are verified against results from other technologies. Notify Vital Images that you have received the FSN to arrange for installation of a software patch. Assess the need to review previous patients' treatment plans.
