How to Redefine Patient Orientation

The Align function allows you to redefine the patient orientation in the image set.

For example, if the patient was scanned in the axial (prone or supine) position but with the head tilted, the labeling of the scan data will not match the orientation. You can correct this by aligning the data so that it corresponds to the label in the respective view.



Press Align .


Rotate and/or pan the image so that the orientation markers in the view align with the actual patient orientation.

Other open views can be used to compare and verify the orientation alignment.
