Image reconstruction: building complete images produced by multimodule segmented detectors into single memory buffers.
Image splitting: dispatching images among several backend computers so that each computer receives a different part of the image, for instance for data processing purposes.
Image extraction: transferring only regions of interest (ROIs) of the images in order to reduce data volume.
Image extension: including zero pixels in the destination buffers to represent the area corresponding to intermodule gaps or dead areas.
Image sampling: reducing data volume and the image resolution by transferring only a sampling of the pixels in the image.
Image binning: lossless data volume reduction by pixel binning procedures
Image mirroring: to cope with a detector built with symmetric modules
Image rotation: to cope with a detector built with rotated modules
