Slice thicknes 0.3mm or 0.4mm?

Hello everyone,
I was wondering; what slice thickness do you use on you Icat machine?
For implant planning software 0.4 is the optimal slice thickness. For radiographic interpretation purposes do you find 0.4 mm adequate or do you or the Oral Radiologist you work with prefer 0.3mm slice thickness?
We find the 0.4 mm way more portable when transfering them over the internet.
Thank you

Khaled I use 0.3 for all my referrals except for Simplant, i-dent and Nobel. I find a difference in the resolution when they are printed. I know they say it is not possible for our naked eye to see this but I think I see a difference.

I use both. For implants, I do my reports with .3mm data, then reconstruct it again at .4mm and use that to export for DICOM & iCat Vision. For TMJs, I use .4mm for everything.

.4 most of the time now. Runs much smoother on viewing software.
