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.

Generated RVEs are meshed with voxels to avoid meshing troubles in resin rich pockets between yarns or close to yarn crossings.
This gives a set of voxels used for a K-means clustering (Lloyd, 1982).
The analysis of the fMRI data involves finding voxels where the MRI signal correlates with the task.
As a result of warping, the signals of voxels in the expanded areas are reduced in intensity, while the signals of the contracted areas are increased in intensity.
Mostly, pores are smaller than the voxel size of these tomography scans and are of no interest as such.
After BOLD signals have been measured and the patient has been released from the machine, researchers must sort the red-hot voxels from the dead fish.
That is, for each voxel above the threshold, a discrete sum was made of the product of two (not necessarily distinct) coordinate differences from the voxel center to the centroid determined above.
If the same MRI instrumentation were used for small-animal imaging experiments as for clinical MRI analyses, the SNR would be expected to be reduced by about 100-fold, corresponding to the 100-fold reduction in voxel volume.
Selection of a voxel and magnetic resonance spectra are shown in Figure 1.
So, while bearing no resemblance to the curiously pleasing voxel models produced during its evolution, Light House adopted a cool industrial-shed-chic aesthetic more resonant with its context.
