How to Use Auto Field of View (FOV) step by step

How to Use Auto Field of View (FoV) Computed Tomography 1. Auto Field of View (FoV) automatically resizes the displayed field of view (graphical scan range box) to best accommodate the size of the current patient. Auto FoV saves time in setting up patient studies and promotes scan consistency. 2. Only recon ranges that have Auto FoV turned on will be affected. These protocols have Auto FoV enabled by default:  Head  Shoulder  Abdomen  Pelvis Extremity   Body Angio  Trauma 3. Once a topogram is scanned, the FoV is adapted automatically to the body contours. If you move the range along the Z-axis, the XY contours update in real time.
