image 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.

Myocardial perfusion PET imaging is increasingly used because of its high diagnostic accuracy, low radiation exposure, short image acquisition time, strong prognostic power, and quantification of myocardial blood flow.
The system provides distortion-free imaging by combining proprietary methods, such as dynamic auto focus and drift correction, which reduces image acquisition time compared to conventional microCT.
The likely explanation for the discrepancy between CTA and DSA findings in our case, as well as the reported cases, lies in differences in image acquisition time.
At very high throughput rates (>1800 ppm), image acquisition time might also need to be taken into consideration.
The MRI stroke protocol generally took 10-15 minutes--timing that should allay concerns about the length of MRI's image acquisition time, they reported.
With this approach, the image acquisition time is much faster than when using a desktop microscope.
A more powerful multislice CT scanner reduces image acquisition time to 11 seconds while providing thinner, more precise slices.
Faster and faster image acquisition times and the ability to collect more and more photons, along with the capacity to capture and store many thousands of digital images, are increasingly common requirements of many scientific studies.
Additionally, image acquisition times are about 10x faster than the standard multi-beam synchrotron instrument owing to the significantly larger field of views, together with the fact that full-sized (128x128) FPAs can be used.
