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

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.

max·i·mum in·ten·si·ty pro·jec·tion

(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.
