It is shown how to generate oblique slices from a set of parallel slices. An algorithm that can produce planes or contours through the volume without any loss of the volume resolution of the original data set is presented. The algorithm uses the Fourier-shift theorem and is efficient for calculating large numbers of slices. Although the algorithm is general, it is particularly well suited for three-dimensional magnetic resonance images, as demonstrated with examples.
