Twenty-five years ago, the field of computational imaging arguably did not exist, at least not as a standalone arena of research activity and technical development. Of course, the idea of using computation to form images had been around for several decades, largely thanks to the development of medical imaging—such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and X-ray tomography—in the 1970s and synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) even earlier. Yet, a quarter of a century ago, such technologies would have been considered to be a subfocus of the wider field of image processing. This view started to change, however, in the late 1990s with a series of innovations that established computational imaging as a scientific and technical pursuit in its own right.
