English term or phrase: Reconstruction Interval/ Slice Thickness
CT Brain Examination:
Reconstruction Interval/ Slice Thickness
[do Reconstruction Interval and Slice Thickness mean the same thing or are they different parameters?]

English translation:No they are different parameters
Explanation:
I found this in a Q&A where they are both clearly distinguished as different parameters:

Scan Parameters
Q: What scan parameters are needed for a detailed description of multislice CT scan protocols?

A: For a proper and reproducible description of multislice CT scan parameters some factors have to be considered:

3) Reconstructed slice thickness in mm which can be retrospectively calculated if the raw data set is still available. This can be done if the primary slice thickness is chosen as 1 mm for multiplanar reconstruction purposes but for the film or monitor reading a larger slice thickness resulting in considerably fewer images is still sufficient. However, the reconstructed slice thickness can only be larger or equal but never be smaller than the chosen detector configuration.

6) Reconstruction interval in mm for reducing volume averaging and improving multiplanar reconstruction

Please see the website for more info.
