voxel

[′väks·əl]
(computer science)
The smallest box-shaped part of a three-dimensional image or scan. Derived from volume pixel.

voxel

(jargon)
(By analogy with "pixel") Volume element.

The smallest distinguishable box-shaped part of a three-dimensional space. A particular voxel will be identified by the x, y and z coordinates of one of its eight corners, or perhaps its centre. The term is used in three dimensional modelling.

voxel

(VOlume piXEL) A three-dimensional pixel. A voxel represents a quantity of 3D data just as a pixel represents a point or cluster of points in 2D data. It is used in scientific and medical applications that process 3D images.
