Imaging:  Our Definition
Imaging is defined broadly as the presentation of spatial and/or temporal data in a visual format that leads to the transfer of information, knowledge, or aesthetics.  This includes the acquisition of scientific data or signals that are assembled to form an image, the direct capture of images with cameras or detectors, the visualization and display of computational data from simulations and models, and the presentation of photographs, paintings, and architectural drawings with artistic value.  Imaging also includes the figures in every research paper that allow us to visualize and interpret data, as well as the psycho-physical aspects of how we interpret the images we see, and how they inspire us.
