We show how an effective nonlocality in imaging can lead to the sampling of a spatial region which is not significantly illuminated by an imaging probe. The nonlocality is embodied in the effective nonlocal potential describing inelastic scattering which occurs when coupled channel Schrödinger equations are reduced to a single integro-differential equation. The context in which this prediction will be illustrated is atomic resolution imaging based on energy-loss spectroscopy in scanning transmission electron microscopy.
