image acquisition time

(redirected from data acquisition time)

image acquisition time

the time required to acquire the data used in producing a magnetic resonance image. It does not include the time involved in constructing the image from the data. In comparing sequential plane imaging and volume imaging techniques, the equivalent image acquisition time per slice must be considered, as well as the actual image acquisition time.

image acquisition time

An MRI term for the time required to gather a complete set of image data. The total scan time for performing a scan must take into consideration the additional image reconstruction time when determining how quickly the image(s) may be viewed.

01 percent reduces data acquisition time for driving high sample rate converters.
Moreover, data acquisition time is short and images can be stored for later evaluation and analyzed as many times as needed (7).
Data acquisition time is instantaneous, so the measurement results are said to be immediate.
The experiment was limited to about 12 days of data due to mechanical problems with the cryostat that surrounded the liquid helium targets, in addition to the relatively long fill and drain times (approximately 30 s to fill and 120 s to drain) of the target chambers needed to switch between polarimeter states, compared to the 600 s data acquisition time for any given polarimeter state.
As a rule, the time to access data in each new generation of tape capacity will be similar to the previous generation, but the time needed to transfer that data may be reduced by as much as 50% for a total net improvement in data acquisition time.
The time required to obtain the FTIR and UV/Vis spectra is limited by the analytical instrument data acquisition time.
Additionally, GarNet is designed to improve the data acquisition time, sensitivity and accuracy of traditional GPS.
Appraisal Institute Commercial Database users -- appraisers, lenders, brokers, owners, investors, tenants, economists, investment bankers and others -- will be able to significantly reduce their data acquisition time and costs as a result of this service.
In addition, image storage is increased in high-resolution digital cameras, longer data acquisition times in remote monitoring equipment, larger reference maps in global positioning systems (GPS), bigger data files in palm-size PCs, and more sophisticated programs in game machines and toys.
Tony Edwards, vice president and general manager of FEI's Electronics Division, adds, "FEI's TrueCrystal Strain Analysis package is an example of our corporate commitment to providing customers with comprehensive, application-specific solutions that aim to maximize TEM productivity, reduce data acquisition times and lower overall cost of analysis.
Depending on the properties engineered into the emulsion formulations, the agents provide superior long-lasting visualization of either the hepatobiliary or vascular systems, a feature particularly useful for use with microCT scanners that benefit from longer data acquisition times with stable contrast enhancement profiles.
