maximum intensity projection


Also found in: Dictionary, Financial, Acronyms, Wikipedia.

maximum intensity projection (MIP),

a computerized image display method, used in MR angiography and helical computed tomography; a series of slices are combined with display of the brightest pixel on any slice at each location, and suppression of the background; simulates a projection angiogram.

maximum intensity projection (MIP)

a three-dimensional image processing method used in computed tomography and magnetic resonance.

maximum intensity projection

A method of processing MRA images that records the maximum intensity ray—generated based on a mathematical algorithm—as it passes through an angiographic volume.

(MIP) (mak'si-mŭm in-ten'si-tē prŏ-jek'shŭn)
Computerized image display method used in magnetic resonance angiography and helical computed tomography; a series of slices are combined with display of the brightest pixel on any slice at each location, and suppression of the background; simulates a projection angiogram.
