Reference Entry
A definition of the medical term "pixel" is presented. This term refers to an individually changed picture element in a digital image. Changes in its size and brightness contribute to the contrast and resolution of the image. The definition is from the "Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary," published by F.A. Davis Co.The pronunciation of the term is also provided.
