C.8.15.3.6.1 Relationships Between CT Geometric Attributes (Informative)

In Figure C.8-19 the relationship of the Geometric Attributes within the CT Geometry and CT Reconstruction functional groups is shown. Figure C.8-19, viewed from the front of the gantry (where the table enters the gantry), is informative only and is not meant to represent a standardization of an equipment-based frame of reference.
