MPR Menu

The MPR menu of the MPR window provides additional functionality concerning loading and management of 3D CT (and MRI) imaging series.

  • Reconstruction Options - use this hierarchical menu to customize MPR display options.
  • PSImage Capture Size - this hierarchical menu selects the size (in pixels) of static image captures. Static image captures work best for treatment planning purposes with a 4:3 (horizontal:vertical) ratio of pixels at about 72 ppi.
  • PSImage Capture Range - this hierarchical menu selects the horizontal range (in mm) of static image captures. Static image captures work best for treatment planning purposes with a horizontal range of about 60 mm.
  • Planes... - Opens the MPR Planes sheet in which you can review the planar reconstruction transforms. This menu item is enabled when the MPR window is in 4 or 6 pane multiplanar reconstruction layout.
  • Meta-Data... - Opens the MPR Meta-data sheet in which you can review and customize the 3D-MPR series modeling parameters that were intialized from preference settings and/or meta-data tags found in the DICOM files. As a convenience, you can also open the Meta-Data sheet by double clicking in the MPR window when it is in single pane image series layout.

  • Slice Crosshair - always show the ruler crosshair on slices in single pane layout.
  • MPR Crosshairs - show the eye centering crosshair when in 6-pane reconstruction layout. The appearance of the centering crosshair will add detail as you "zoom-in" on the eye.
  • MPR Histograms - overlay a histogram of the 8-bit gray levels under the eye centering crosshair. The histogram will become visible as you "zoom-in" on the eye. Histogram symmetry can help to find the geometric center of the eye.
  • Centering Circles - add centering circles to the eye centering crosshair.
  • Annotations - add annotations to slices and the axial reconstruction.
  • Calibration Rulers - add green calibration rulers to slices and reconstructions in the manner of OsiriX reconstructions.
  • Orientations - Add orientation codes to slices and reconstructions.
  • Eye Model - Add a more detailed eye model to the eye centering crosshair when in 6-pane reconstruction layout.
  • Retina - Adds the inner sclera to the eye centering crosshair.
  • Nerve - Enable disc and nerve modeling.
  • Lens - Enable lens modeling.

PSImage Capture Size

You may optionally capture reconstructions as static images for display in Plaque Simulator's Image window and/or printing as pages of Plaque Simulator's Images document. For treatment planning purposes, static images work best with a 4:3 aspect ratio and resolution of about 1024x768 (XGA) pixels.

  • 800x600 - capture static images with a resolution of 800x600 pixels (SVGA).
  • 1024x768 - capture static images with a resolution of 1024x768 pixels (XGA).
  • 1200x900 - capture static images with a resolution of 1200x900 pixels.

PSImage Capture Range

You may optionally capture reconstructions as static images for display in Plaque Simulator's Image window and/or printing as pages of Plaque Simulator's Images document. For treatment planning purposes, static images work best with a horizontal range of about 60 mm.

  • 50 mm - capture static images with horizontal range of 50 mm.
  • 60 mm - capture static images with horizontal range of 60 mm.
  • 70 mm - capture static images with horizontal range of 70 mm.
