Title: Method and apparatus for minimizing blurring and generating a high resolution image in a radiation imaging system

Abstract: A method for generating a high resolution image in a radiation imaging system which produces multiple exposure signals from a movable detector array is disclosed. The image data signals or image acquisition signals generated from the image detector assembly of the image radiation system during an imaging cycle are passed through a finite impulse response filter having a combined frequency response comprised of an inverse filter frequency response portion and a noise regularization frequency response portion such that the noise regularization decrease the frequency response of the filter as the frequency of the data signals increase thereby effectively preventing blurring of the image produced from the image data signals.
