voxel

 [vok´sel]
a volume element; the region in a tissue slice that corresponds to a pixel (picture element) in an image. See also computed tomography.

vox·el

(vok'sel),
A contraction for volume element, which is the basic unit of CT or MR reconstruction; represented as a pixel in the display of the CT or MR image.

voxel

[vok′səl]
abbreviation for volume element, the three-dimensional version of a pixel.

voxel

An MRI term for the element of the three-dimensional space that corresponds to a pixel for a given slice thickness.

Therefore the distribution of the orientation vectors of the voxels should show peaks corresponding to the main shafts of each fibre.
Finally, the clustering methods [19-25] also have problems to identify patterns of activation and specific ROIs since they force voxels to be grouped into separate functional clusters.
proposed to oversegment LH histogram using mean shift clustering and then group similar voxels by using hierarchical clustering [24].
Figure 1 shows some of the system's participants: voxels, metavoxels, a volume-primitive particle, a light, a camera, and the world.
A principal component model was generated from a dataset of 400 simulated 3D images with 100 x 100 x 50 voxels.
To solve this problem, the Japanese researchers created plasma voxels using femtosecond lasers that pulsed between 30-269 femtoseconds at a time.
This pattern is known as a voxel mesh (volume and pixel).
empty voxels do not need to be subdivided, which often results in large empty regions (Escobar, 2009).
Once activation maps have been produced, hemispheric dominance is assessed by either counting the active voxels (volumetric pixels representing a value in 3-dimensional space) at a specified threshold in each hemisphere, or assessing BOLD signal changes in pre-defined anatomical regions.
The electric potentials are defined at the vertices of the voxels, and the electric field is defined by set of discrete vectors on the voxel edges; the magnitude of the electric field is defined at the voxel centre by averaging the three sets of four parallel edge electric field components.
