With MPR algorithms, images can be easily obtained and oriented in all planes of vision while modified by the operator in real time. The raw data are used for the reconstruction such that there is no loss of image quality. The MPR technique can be applied to increase the diagnostic sensitivity in the evaluation of diffuse lung diseases, allowing improved determination of their location and extent. The radiologist profits from the ability to select the orientation plane that best reveals a key aspect of the disease, thus raising the diagnostic power of the method.
