Move your cursor over the 3D Slicer logo, change the FOV value and
press Enter.

If you want to get a better view of 512x512 CT slices do the following.

- Set the FOV to width * pixel size.
- In the View menu, select the 1x512 option.
- Move your mouse over the 3D view window (the one with blue background,
  not over the image slices) and press the key u. This should
  bring up the vtk Interactor window where you can type in Tcl/Tk
- Type this:
  Slicer SetDrawDoubleApproach 1

You should get a better view now.

Fixing this shortcoming of slicer is in alpha test now.
