Issue

In the Syngo.ct va40 and Syngo.ct va50 myneedle guide application, the order of the orientation labels "head", "center", and "feet" in the axial thick slice segments are erroneously swapped in the following two cases:
• if the recon parameter "image order" is changed by the user from the default setting "head to feet" to "feet to head", or
• if the recon parameter "mirroring" is changed by the user from the default setting "none" to any other value, this influences the parameter "image order", which is switched from the default setting "head to feet" to "feet to head" so that above-mentioned condition applies.
