resolution

 [rez″o-loo´shun]
1. subsiding of a pathologic state, such as the reduction of inflammation or the softening and disappearance of swelling.
2. perception of two adjacent points as separate; in microscopy, the smallest distance at which two adjacent objects can be distinguished as separate.
3. in radiology, a measure of how much detail a device can print or display.

res·o·lu·tion (Rs),

(rez'ō-lū'shŭn),
1. The arrest of an inflammatory process without suppuration; the absorption or breaking down and removal of the products of inflammation or of a new growth.
2. The optic ability to distinguish detail such as the separation of closely adjacent objects. Synonym(s): resolving power (3)
[L. resolutio, a slackening, fr. re-solvo, pp. -solutus, to loosen, relax]

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.
2. Medicine The subsiding or termination of an abnormal condition, such as a fever or inflammation.

resolution (R)

Etymology: L, re + solvere, to solve
1 the state of having made a firm determination or decision on a course of action.
2 the ability of an imaging process to distinguish adjacent structures in an object. It is an important measure of image quality.
3 the ability of a chromatographic system to separate two adjacent peaks. The degree of separation between two peaks is represented by the symbol R.

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.

arrest of inflammation and promotion of healing
