Module Description

This module provides a simple way to serialize the BoneTexture module.
In order to make it work, all the input data should be in the same folder and named as following:

  • The input scan should be named ScanXXX.nrrd, where XXX is the ID of the case
  • If it exists, the input mask should be named SegmCXXX.nrrd, where XXX is the ID corresponding to the the input scan



Use Cases


BoneTextureSerializer Input
This section allows the user to specify the input folder, the folder specified should contain all the inputs (scans and segmentations) as described previously.


BoneTextureSerializer 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


Image:BoneTextureSerializer Image:BoneTextureSerializer
This section allows the user to specify the folder where all the results will be saved:
  • The texture features for the whole image will be saved in a csv file
  • The texture maps can either be saved all in a same file (a diffusion weighted image containing all the feature maps of a case) or separated (each feature map will be saved as a single volume)
