Some colleagues gave me answers but many others asked for clarification.
Let's try again:

The two data sets are taken from the same object in the same position with
the same Scanner;
both are formed by the same number of slices (let's say 1 mm steps)
obtained by interpolation of the real data set;
the only difference is the original data set, which can contain more or
less slices, positioned at different levels.

Hope this will sound more clear. Sorry
