|20130020476||Method of stitching and linearization of multisensor detectors gain characteristics - Digital detectors of X-ray image intended for stitching and linearization of gain characteristics of independent sensors of multisensor detectors are disclosed. The technical result is the development of methodology of stitching and linearization of multisensor detectors gain characteristics under the conditions of non equal irradiance (the use of radiation source with flat X-ray (light) field is not required). The method is based on calculation of LUT functions for conversion of output signals intensity of detector sensors. As a result of application of the stated conversion LUT functions the sensors gain characteristics are received which are the same and linear within the precision of measurements. Calculation of stitching LUT functions employs the availability of non-equal X-ray (light) field slowly changing along the area of detector. The responses of any two adjacent sensors with the same gain characteristics shall have similar values near the joint of these sensors.||01-24-2013|
