linear array


Also found in: Encyclopedia.

linear array

a contiguous sequence of identical discrete detectors, either gas-filled ionization chambers or solid-state semiconductors, used with a fan beam x-ray generator. The detectors read off once for each x-ray pulse. The resulting electronic signal is digitized and stored in a computer memory.
