How Do I Look?...
The primary parameters control how our image appears. They are the final goal that we want to achieve by manipulating our secondary parameters.
The primary parameters are signal to noise ratio (SNR), contrast to noise ratio (CNR), spatial resolution, and temporal resolution.
We often focus on our resolution, while saying, we want to make our image look nice. The ability to see detail is important, but it is pointless if you cannot see your image through noise.

Signal to Noise
The SNR is influenced by everything. We need to respect the balance between our other imaging factors and SNR in order to produce a well-rounded image.
