In our case, it is natural to insist that there be at least none of any given material in any given voxel, i.e., [f.sub.[[??]]i] [greater than or equal to] 0.
Therefore, the value of [E.sub.ball] of a voxel can express the possibility that the voxel belongs to the nodule.
Biswal proposed seed-based analysis in which a seed is selected and the linear correlation of this seed region with all the other voxels in the entire brain is found to get the seed-based functional connectivity (FC) map (1).
The core of the MC algorithm is to individually deal with each voxel in the three-dimensional data field, then use the compare data between each peak in each voxel and the isometric surface to determine the intersection of the voxel and the isometric surface.
According to Kevin Brown of HDI at the time, if HDI was successful in acquiring Voxel, he planned to establish two operating divisions: medical diagnostics and security holograms.
The voxel volume can be viewed using different imaging options.
The Voxel Company, which was valued at $3.5 million during the valuation process, intends to use the new funding in improving and developing its services and increase its expansion in the local and regional market.
A variability threshold coefficient of 20% was adopted for voxel intensity, in comparison to the mean, considering as pure those with intensity within the following interval [[mu] - 1[sigma], [mu] + 1[sigma]] (Costa et al., 2016).
The voxel intensities of GM, WM, and CSF were modified and a rigid body or affine transformation with resampling to the PET voxel size was applied.
[22] added higher-order derivatives of the voxel to transfer function domain in his presented approach.
The image quality of devices using the cone-beam geometry varies according to acquisition parameters such as milliamperage, kilovoltage, and voxel size.
Subsequently, [29] using MRI, a simple linear model was proposed to correct the effect of age on grey matter (GM) voxel values by determining a regression coefficient [[beta].sub.C] between age and each voxel coordinate of the separate healthy control group.
