Oddly enough I just read about ultrasonic testing last week (I dont use it but was looking into it for an unrealted issue) And a c-scan is a scan over an entire surfece at a specidied depth. Where an A-scan is a the raw ultrasonic data and a B-scan is a line of A-scans. A double check of my memory might be needed.

Engineers are alware so creative with our naming conventions, I would think a point scan, line-scan and area scan would be more descriptive or at least call it alpha beta and gamma to make it sound more important.

It's better that we as engineers use simple naming conventions like a, b, and c... can you imagine if biologists or doctors started naming conventions for variables or such things? It'd be rediculous...
Though I guess such is jargon for a reason.
