What is Image Processing?

The field of image processing involves the use of computer algorithms to process images for analysis. Image analysis and image enhancement have many use cases in a variety of areas, including criminal justice, drug discovery and healthcare, and the military. Computer vision has transformed the way we pursue digital image processing. We have the capability to find useful information through image segmentation and contrast enhancement down to a pixel. We've also expanded our image acquisition capabilities. Where we once relied on x-rays in healthcare, for example, we now have digital photographic capabilities for full exploration. With a variety of image formats and the ability to work with multiple digital signals, our understanding of image processing has evolved.
