In one aspect, the invention is a method for changing at least one of a number of image slices and in-plane resolutions available in an existing imaging system. The method includes steps of: replacing the existing detector array with a replacement detector array having either narrower detector cells in the x-direction than an existing detector array, a greater number of detector cells than that of the existing detector array, or both; and selecting an in-plane resolution of the replacement detector array in accordance with a maximum bandwidth limit of a communication path in the imaging system.
