Grayscale image to show lab value of tooth

A grayscale digital image is an image in which the value of each pixel is a single sample= it carries only intensity information. Also known as a black-and-white, they are composed exclusively of shades of gray; varying from black at the weakest intensity to white at the strongest. Grayscale images are distinct from one-bit bi-tonal black-and-white images, which in the context of computer imaging are images with only the two colors; black and white. Grayscale images have many shades of gray in between. Grayscale images are also called monochromatic, denoting the presence of only one (mono) color (chrome).
