XXX.3.9.1 User Scenario

When evaluating the placement of a coronary artery stent, the stent is often viewed in each phase of a multiphase cardiac CT. An oblique Planar MPR MIP slab is typically used. Because of cardiac motion the oblique plane must be repositioned for each phase in order to yield the best view of the stent in that phase, resulting in a sequence of Planar MPR views with different geometry but identical display parameters.
