Its speed can be used for fast imaging of large volumes of tissue with wide sections. This is particularly useful in studies where patient motion is a limiting factor. Their ability to cover large body sections in short scan times with thin beams for producing thin, high-detail slice images or 3-D images is a characteristic of ____________ technology.

CT scanning

With conventional single detector array scanners, opening up the collimator increases slice thickness, which is good for the utilization of x-rays but reduces spatial resolution in the slice thickness dimension. With the introduction of multiple detector arrays, the slice thickness is determined by the detector size and not by the ____________.

collimator

Overcoming x-ray tube output limitation. One problem quickly encountered with single detector row scanning (SSCT) was excess stress on the x-ray tube. That is, the x-ray tube would heat to extreme temperatures as very high energy was deposited onto the ____________.

anode
