Module Description

This module provide a simple and dynamic user interface that allows:



Use Cases


BoneTexture Inputs
This section allows the user to specify:
  • The input scan: it's interesting to notice that the computation time will improve if the useful data is taking as much space as possible in the input scan (a preliminary cropping step might be considered in order to erase the useless data on the boundaries)
  • An input mask: the mask is optional, therefore it will reduce the computation time of the algorithms


BoneTexture parameters
This section allows the user to choose:
  • The Type of features wanted: Run length features or co-occurrence features
  • All the parameters necessary to run each algorithms
  • The type of outputs wanted: texture features or texture maps
GLCM Parameters
GLRLM Parameters
BM Parameters

Result display

Texture features

Texture features result
The texture features computed over the whole input scan will be displayed in this table.

Texture Maps

Texture map choice
This section allows the user to easily observe the texture maps generated.

The first drop down menu allow to choose the texture map set (usually GLCM or CLRLM).

Feature choice
The second drop down menu allow to choose the feature displayed in the 3D view of Slicer.
