Segments Number

The selection for the segments number is illustrated below. It includes the division into 4, 6, 12, 24, 60 and 120 angular segments of decreasing size.

The AHA 16 and AHA 17 selections are specific: they will apply 6 sectors in the basal and mid-cavity slices, and 4 sectors in the apical slices. AHA 17 includes as a 17th segment the apical cap. These definitions can only be applied with at least 4 slices.
