in fact I acquire axial images primarily to create good sag and coronal 
reformations. The thinner the sections, the better resolution. The less 
movement, the better the reformations

By the way, RECONSTRUCTION is the primary algorithm that takes the xyz data 
and creates an axial image. Every other plane that is created  is a 
REFORMATION of that original data calculation
