Imaging science is a relatively new discipline that combines computer-based imaging techniques with a variety of data acquisition tools to increase the range of properties that scientists can observe. The generic issues of imaging science include image-data acquisition; image reconstruction and processing; image recording and distribution; image display, analysis, and evaluation; human vision; and the mental processes involved in observation.
