image plane

image plane

[′im·ij ‚plān]
(optics)
The plane in which an image produced by an optical system is formed; if the object plane is perpendicular to the optical axis, the image plane will ordinarily also be perpendicular to the axis.

As the angle of view changes, the focal point of each micro-lens sweeps across the image plane. The resulting effect is one of dramatic movement by the magnified images.
With a variable, point of impact can change with changes in magnification, assuming scopes with reticles in the second image plane. Here again, technology has evolved to where this effect has been greatly minimized, but it's still there because there must be tolerances if an external power-change ring is to move an internal lens assembly.
They cover continual and digital images, transforming appearance, filtering to segment, morphological filtering, deforming boundaries to segment, filtering to find points-of-interest, transforming image plane, and spectra and spectral filtering.

Confocal microscopy is typically limited to an imaging area of just millimeters but placing the samples in the macroscanner's intermediate image plane allowed the researchers to image larger samples.
The Scheimpflug principle, traditionally credited to Theodor Scheimpflug in 1902, states that the object plane (the plane that is in focus), the thin lens's plane, and the image plane must all meet in a single line, Scheimpflug line.
That means the relation between S' coordinate in FOV A image plane and its coordinate in FOV B image plane will also change.
Based on the similarity between the 3D images, where a 3D content is represented in a single image plane consisting of the logical image cells [12], our results can be applied to integral [13-15], multiview [16-18], plenoptic images, and light-field displays [19-21].
Perceived image plane is the plane on which the direction of the right and left eye concentrates on the point.
A typical control image for CASL in early applications was acquired with a labelling plane symmetric to that used in the tagged image but distal to the image plane (Figure 6) in order to compensate for the MT effects [26].
Table 3 and Figure 6 show the lens parameters and initial structure, respectively, which reveal that the focus of the image plane had a room for improvement.
Initially, every electrode was advanced deeper into the prostate than the visualized axial image plane showing the target lesion's maximal extension.
