1010103Image CharacteristicsImaging is the process of mapping a certain physical property of an object and displaying it in a visual form.1 Examples of such physical properties include absorption (e.g., light imaging, x-rays), emission (e.g. fluorescence imaging), scattering (e.g. phase contrast imaging) reflectivity (e.g., ultrasound, common photography), proton density (e.g., MRI), concentration of radionuclides (e.g., nuclear imaging). In microscopy, intrinsic specimen absorption, emission, and scattering
