Module Description

Threshold an image.

Set image values to a user-specified outside value if they are below, above, or between simple threshold values.

ThresholdAbove: The values greater than or equal to the threshold value are set to OutsideValue.

ThresholdBelow: The values less than or equal to the threshold value are set to OutsideValue.

ThresholdOutside: The values outside the range Lower-Upper are set to OutsideValue.

Although all image types are supported on input, only signed types are produced.

Use Cases

Most frequently used for these scenarios:

  • Use Case 1: threshold a CT to recover bone structures
  • Use Case 2: create a mask volume to limit processing to a region of a brain (for example, a tumor showing up as higher intensity)



Panels and their use

  • IO
    • Input Volume: Input volume
    • Output Volume: Thresholded input volume
  • Filter Settings
    • Threshold Value: Threshold value
    • Lower: Lower threshold value
    • Upper: Upper threshold value
    • Outside Value: Set the voxels to this value if they fall outside the threshold range
    • Threshold Type: What kind of threshold to perform. If Outside is selected, uses Upper and Lower values. If Below is selected, uses the ThresholdValue, if Above is selected, uses the ThresholdValue.

Similar Modules

  • The Editor module also has a threshold function
