pix·el

(pik'sĕl),
A contraction for picture element, a two-dimensional representation of a volume element (voxel) in the display of the CT or MR image, usually 512 × 512 or 256 × 256 pixels, respectively.

pixel

A portmanteau for picture element, the smallest discrete two-dimensional unit of a digital image.
