  Voxel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A voxel (a portmanteau of the words volumetric and pixel) is a volume element, representing a value in three dimensional space.
Voxels are frequently used in the visualisation and analysis of medical and scientific data.
Voxels can contain multiple scalar values what essentially is a vector data; in the case of ultrasound scans with B-mode and Doppler data, density, and volumetric flow rate are captured as separate channels of data relating to the same voxel positions.

Voxels, the volumetric equivalent of a pixel, are a popular representation scheme for volumetric data, and have been used in recent volume reconstruction work.
A voxel is visible if the projection of the voxel to the image is within the boundaries of the image, and no closer voxel in the model projects to the same image location.
The distance between the voxel and the image is computed, and is compared to the distance to other voxels which projected to the same image location, the closest voxel is stored associated with this pixel location.

de:Voxel A voxel is a three-dimensional pixel (a volume pixel) that is, a pixel with a third coordinate after the usual pair.
Voxels are often used in computer graphics to obtain an approximation of 3D displays.
A single "layer" of voxels is not a 3D display in the strict sense: if we assume that the coordinates refer to a plane, only one height is possible at any given position, and so multiple objects at the same planar position are not possible.

Voxel Hunt uses a voxel renderer to display terrain that is higher resolution than poly-based terrain on similar hardware.
Voxel Hunt uses a heightmap to generate its height field, and an interpolated color map that is generated from the heightmap at run time.

A voxel map is a huge array, with for each location on the map a color and a height.
Good thing about voxel engines is that their speed is virtually constant: No matter how much detail there is in the scene, it is drawn at (almost) the same speed.
The usual voxel algorithm assumes that each bar starts at the bottom screen line, so that overdraw can be eliminated by clipping subsequent bars against the height as indicated by the array that I mentioned before.

 Steve Seitz's Voxel Coloring Page
That is, we represent the environment as a discretized set of voxels, and use an algorithm that traverses these voxels and colors those that are part of a surface in the scene.
That is, we can first visit all voxels in the "layer" immediately adjacent to the convex hull of the cameras, then visit all voxels in the next layer immediately adjacent to the first layer, and so on.
Below are two examples of the voxel coloring algorithm, one of a scene containing a toy dinosaur (6cm x 8cm x 10cm), and the other of a real rose.

 What is voxel? - A Word Definition From the Webopedia Computer Dictionary
Voxelization is the process of adding depth to an image using a set of cross-sectional images known as a volumetric dataset.
Voxel images are primarily used in the field of medicine and are applied to X-Rays, CAT (Computed Axial Tomography) Scans, and MRIs (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) so professionals can obtain accurate 3D models of the human body.
Voxel imaging is also being used to create computer games, so 3D acceleration is not necessary.

Voxel processing is a means of visualizing 3-dimensional shapes and structures implied by a series of cross-sectional images.
Voxel processing presupposes that a series of cross-sectional images, representing some volume which was regulary sampled at some constant interval, exists in digital form.
Because voxels, by definition, exist in 3 dimensions, any voxel has the capability of obscuring the view of any other voxel, depending on the orientation of the dataset.

Voxel Graphics is a means of modeling 3D objects with sampled points (voxels) instead of surfaces.
Voxel data structures ease operations such as detecting collisions and modifying the environment.
This is a major difference with polygon models in which the complexity of the model effects the number of polygons and texture, and heavily impact the memory footprint.

Voxels were those 3D pixel mutations that promised a new future for gaming environments.
Voxels reared their ugly heads in the late 90s (can you say Outcast?), but they just didn’t seem to catch on.
And so, Game.Ars remembers the voxel (heck, I had to think of something to intro the column), a forgotten graphics gremlin that appeared in some memorable games but just couldn’t stand up to the mighty polygon.

 Volume Graphics - About Voxels   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Volume rendering, or more generally spoken volume graphics, is a sub-specialty of 3D computer graphics which is concerned with the discrete representation and visualization of objects represented as sampled data in three or more dimensions.
The term voxel is used to characterize a volume element; it is a generalization of the notion of pixel that stands for a picture element.
Volume graphics or volume rendering has inherent advantages for applications needing visualization of irregular objects, or where the interior structure is important, or where high level of details and realism is essential - e.g., representations of the human body.

Voxel objects are stored as a three dimensional map of matter, with each voxel (or texel in a volume map) indicating something about that “lump” of matter — its colour, translucency, or “power” in the case of metaballs.
In the “power” case, a threshold value is used; voxel values that are above (or below) this value are considered to be solid matter, with the rest considered to be empty space.
Typically, voxel objects are converted to polygons before rendering using the “marching cubes” algorithm, or similar.

 Voxel anisotropy and interpolation to cubic voxels
For example, if your file has a voxel x size of 2.5 and a voxel y size of 1.25, interpolation will lead to an x dimension that is twice the original x dimension minus one (assuming that the z dimension is greater than or equal to 1.0).
It is possible to use the program manualreslice to interpolate a file to cubic voxels or to specify a.air file to perform this transformation by specifying rotations and translations of zero and scaling factors of 1.0.
Please be aware that manualreslice uses a center-of-file-as-origin model by default and consequently may not produce the same result that would have been obtained using the automatic interpolation function used elsewhere in the AIR package.

It has a broad range of applications, from education to astrophysics, but Voxel’s primary market focus is orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons, who can use the system for everything from surgical planning to more accurately visualizing surgeries while they are underway.
The system has proven highly effective in diagnosing conditions that are difficult or impossible to detect with existing technology, reducing the time required to arrive at high-confidence diagnoses, and facilitating communication in referring physicians and patients — not to mention dramatically increasing surgical confidence.

Since a pixel (picture element) defines a point in two dimensional space with its x and y coordinates, a third z coordinate is needed.
Medical practitioners and researchers are now using images defined by voxels and 3-D software to view X-rays, cathode tube scans, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans from different angles, effectively to see the inside of the body from outside.
2) Voxel is also a company that makes a scanning camera that will produce 3-D images of the inside of the human body by using a patented digital holography system.

 Voxel Graphics and Volume Rendering I
It is possible to do volume rendering using 2D textures, but imagine a cubic voxel data set, to be rendered it has to be sliced into a three sets of parallel quad planes, each set normal to each of the cube axis.
A "world" coordinate system is defined so that the voxels near the lower left corners becomes (0,0,0), and the voxel farthest away at the opposite diagonal has coordinates (L,M,N).
In general the quads are derived from the interpolated value at the intersection of the voxel set with a set of planes perpendicular to the major axis of the cube.

Also, voxels are actually a target of the future, not of the past.
The problem with implimentation is it requires large amounts of memory (X1xY1xZ1), but overcomming that limitation gives you very realistic objects that can be "opened" and broken apart to reveal the innards.
