A group of special processors designed to calculate math procedures at very high speeds, often under the control fo another central processor. Some computers use array processors to speed up video operations or for fast floating-point math operations.

A special high speed computer capable of performing the large, complex calculations required to process images.

a dedicated computer system used to perform Fourier transformations to accelerate the processing of the received numerical data relative to the MR imaging process.

a processor capable of executing instructions that operate on input that may consist of arrays

a separate CPU used by the computer for computational speed in parallel mode rather than in sequential mode

An array processor is a common accessory to the computer system of an MRI machine. It functions to speed up numeric calculations, such as the Fourier transformation used to reconstruct images and spectra.

A specialized digital signal-processing unit capable of handling large-scale arrays (matrices) of computation (such as those encountered in fast Fourier transforms, matrix inversions, and so forth) used in some image-processing tasks.

(n.) Any computer designed primarily to perform data parallel calculations on arrays or matrices. The two principle architectures used are the processor array and the vector processor.
