cathode ray oscilloscope

cath·ode ray os·cil·lo·scope (CRO),

the common form of oscilloscope, in which a varying electrical signal (y) vertically deflects an electron beam impinging on a fluorescent screen, while some other function (x or time) deflects the beam horizontally; the result is a visual graph of y plotted against x or time with negligible distortion by inertia.

cathode ray oscilloscope

Etymology: Gk, kata + hodos + L, radius + ocillare, to swing; Gk, skopein, to view
an instrument that produces a visual representation of electrical variations by means of the fluorescent screen of a cathode ray tube. Oscilloscopes have many applications in medicine and in nursing, such as the displaying of patients' brain waves and heartbeats for monitoring and diagnostic purposes.
