MHCT scanners allow retrospective image reconstruction to thinner or thicker image slices after the scan has been completed, as long as the original acquisition data is intact. In thoracic imaging, the ability to retrospectively obtain thin section images through lung nodules detected on routine scans is likely the most important application for this feature.
