CT Disable options These options should be reserved for advanced users.
Disable use of normalization matrix Reduces the amount of memory required in CT reconstruction, however, invalidates HU calibration for helical acquisition orbits.
Disable multi-threaded reconstructions Forces VQ to use only a single thread (i.e. utility only single CPU or core) for reconstruction, thus reducing efficiency on SMP systems.
Disable Hounsfield calibration Turns off application of Hounsfield calibration data. Hounsfield Calibration.
