Standard for Orientation of Scouts and Scans in CT Software
« on: February 02, 2022, 10:48:18 am »
Hi Dr. Fishman,

Hoping you can assist. I am trying to find a standard for the display of scouts and scans in CT software.

For example, if scanning a prone patient, should the scouts and scan be displayed as if the patient is prone ( right on right) or should they revert to anatomical position. ( left on right).

I have not been able to find any documentation on this. I am not looking for hanging protocols but orientation standards during acquisition and viewing.

Should the scouts and acquisition window show prone but the 2D, 3D, and MPR viewers show anatomical position?

Is there a place where I can find the standard orientation coordinates for the following:


Thank you. I look forward to hearing from you.
