Medical - Medical: Instruments / CT scan
French term or phrase: millimétrique (coupes millimétriques)
A CT scan of the chest is described as:

Scanner spiralé millimétrique

As far as I am aware, slices are nearly always measured in millimetres, so I am wondering whether this actually means "1 mm slices" as opposed to "millimetric slices", especially since nearly all ghits for the latter are by foreign authors.

Thanks.

neutral  SJLD: scanner in FR refers to the procedure (scan) not the machine/yes I can see that - but this is a spiral scan not a scanner.

Sounds like a 1 mm thick slice to me.

3) Haute résolution volumique

La Haute Résolution Tomodensitométrique (HRCT) a fortement amélioré les performances de la Tomodensitométrie en particulier dans l'étude du parenchyme pulmonaire. La Haute Résolution Tomodensitométrique nécessite la pratique de coupes millimétriques, avec une matrice de reconstruction adaptée et un algorithme de reconstruction de type osseux. Il est possible actuellement, grâce au mode spiralé, de réaliser une Haute Résolution Volumique. Celle-ci s'obtient en réalisant une acquisition spiralée de 10 coupes millimétriques sur une hauteur de 10 mm (déplacement de la table de 1 mm par seconde, épaisseur de coupe de 1 mm, pitch = 1 ). Sur le petit volume ainsi acquis, il est alors possible d'appliquer deux algorithmes de reconstructions complémentaires : le Maximum Intensité Projection (MIP) qui sélectionne tous les pixels d'intensité maximale et le minimum Intensité Projection (mIP) qui sélectionne tous les pixels d'intensité minimum. Les fenêtres de visualisation (niveau et largeur) sont les suivantes : pour le MIP -450/1450 UH, pour le mIP -850/850 UH. Ce mode de reconstruction de l'image est dévoloppé par Général Electric sous l'appelation Multi Planar Volume Reconstruction (MPVR) et par Siemens sous l'appellation Sliding Thin Slices (STS).
