Small-angle correlations of Proton pairs produced in central Ni+Ni collisions at a beam energy of 1.93 AGeV are investigated with the FOPI detector System at GSI Darmstadt. A well-defined emission source is selected by triggering on central events which comprise about 8% of the total cross section. Simultaneous comparison of longitudinal and transverse correlation functions with the predictions of the Koonin model allows to unravel the space-time ambiguity of the emission process. Taking into account the strong collactive expansion of the participant zone, which introduces a reduction of the extracted source radius of more than 30% r.m.s. radius and emission time parameters of Rrms = ( 4.2 ± 1.2) fm and trms = (11+7-5) fm/c are extracted, respectively. In contrast, the analysis of the angle-integrated correlation function gives an upper limit Rrms = (7.0 ± 1.4) fm of the source radius.
