Scan Preparation and Image Acquisition
Care must be taken to avoid collision of the components with the scanner during scanning.
Perform all scans according to the parameters given in the Scan Protocol.
Acquire T1 weighted image sets.
To avoid inaccuracies turn on 3D Distortion Correction and use the minimum bandwidth as stated in the Scan Protocol.
Follow the sterile draping instructions in the Cranial/ENT Optical Instrument User Guide.
Ensure that there is no relative movement between the patient’s head and reference array after registration (e.g., through the following):
- Movement of the patient’s head in the head clamp
- Movement of the reference array
- Movement of the registration matrix
