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.

As it can be seen in Figs 3, 4, and 5, the voxel vectors and fibre orientation vectors show unambiguously the correctness of the algorithm and the software.
Therefore, slices were covering the whole brain; voxel size of EPI images was 3.
In order to achieve more appealing visualization, we further refine the opacity value of each voxel in the cluster according to the voxel's gradient value, which usually indicates whether the voxel is near the boundary of the cluster or not.
We identify the metavoxels affected by the volume primitives, compute the color and density of the affected voxels, propagate lighting, and ray-march the result from the eye's point of view.
To solve this problem, the Japanese researchers created plasma voxels using femtosecond lasers that pulsed between 30-269 femtoseconds at a time.
Computation of all the PCA components would require enormous amount of memory, only the V matrix would have the size of 500k x 500k elements (assuming 2x2x2 mm voxel size), which in float data format requires 1TB of memory.

Rather than an advertising solution vendor, Voxel is positioning itself as a virtual visualization tool that can deliver value across industries.
In the TROyA technique, these values (number of facets within a voxel and the deep level) can be modified depending on the geometrical model complexity.
In single-subject analyses at our centre, a voxel count is typically conducted in each hemisphere using specified threshold settings in order to adhere to standardised criteria.
the conducting body) to be discretized into a set of elementary parallelepipeds or voxels; within each voxel the electrical properties of the material are assumed constant.
With the number of intercepts (transitions from background to foreground) in 13 directions generated by a voxel and its first and second neighbours on the cubic grid, it is possible to estimate the surface area of each grain i from the closed reconstructed data (denoted [S.
