1. A data detection system for an X-ray CT apparatus comprising:
a data acquisition circuit, including at least one row of X-ray detection elements arrayed in a channel direction, and configured to acquire data required for generating X-ray CT image data corresponding to the at least one row of the X-ray detection elements; and
a connection structure configured to connect said data acquisition circuit with another adjacent data acquisition circuit directly or indirectly in a row direction, the X-ray detection elements installed in said data acquisition circuit shifting from X-ray detection elements installed in the another adjacent data acquisition circuit in the channel direction; and
an adjustment structure configured to adjust a shift amount in the channel direction between said data acquisition circuit and the another adjacent data acquisition circuit.
