Imaging is the visual representation of a subject. Imaging methods may provide a two-dimensional depiction of a surface or a three-dimensional reconstruction, they may use special probes or modalities to track specific molecular features, and they may use invasive or non-invasive means to visualize the internal components of a subject.
