From Argentina, a CT scan report:

table movement


Explanation:

As originally defined for SSCT, helical pitch was calculated as table movement per rotation divided by slice thickness. For example, with a slice thickness of 5 mm and a table movement of 7.5 mm per rotation, pitch would be 1.5.

The rate of table movement during the scan is related to the speed of data acquisition defined by the concept of pitch
