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.

Clearly, the difference between wood and coating voxels is more pronounced than the demarcation between noise and wood.
4 represents a very accurate reconstruction of the human brain, because of the high contrast between the intensities of the voxels inside the isosurface and the intensities of the voxels outside the isosurface.
Often, though, researchers don't know where to focus, instead relying on statistics to tell them which voxels in the entire brain are worth a closer look.
The object was taken to include all voxels above the threshold (below in the case of the microCT).
