The distortion in a 2-D scan pattern generated by a system of a plane mirror and a regular polygon scanner was investigated using the matrix formulation of reflection by plane mirrors. A particular configuration involving the two scan elements was identified which does not introduce any distortion in its 2-D scan pattern.
