The user can choose to measure 8, 16 or 24 points per circle in order to improve the repeatability of the analysis results.
- The eight points, indicated as , are distributed every 45º.
- With the 16 points per circle, an extra set of eight points, indicated as , is measured on the circle and is shifted by an angle. This angle is a parameter available on the 'Data' page of the 'MCG sequence' form.
- With the 24 points per circle option, a second set of 8 points, indicated as , is added but is shifted by an apposite angle.
