resolution

(rĕz′ə-lo͞o′shən)
n.
1. The clarity or fineness of detail that can be distinguished in an image, often measured as the number or the density of the discrete units, such as pixels or dots, that compose it.

resolution (R)

Etymology: L, re + solvere, to solve
1 the state of having made a firm determination or decision on a course of action.

resolution

The fourth and final phase of Masters and Johnson’s four-stage model of physiological responses to sexual stimulation, which follows orgasm, and is characterised by muscle relaxation, reduced heart rate and vasodilation. For most males, and some females, this is accompanied by the refractory period, in which further orgasm is physiologically impossible.

resolution

the minimum distance between two points at which they can be seen as such rather than as a single point. With the light microscope this is approximately half the wavelength of light used in illumination. Only with a shorter wavelength can greater resolution be achieved, as in the ELECTRON MICROSCOPE which gives a resolution of about 0.5 nm.

resolution

arrest of inflammation and promotion of healing
