Module Description

The ContourMorphology provides morphological operators to perform on contours. The available operators are:

  • Expand
  • Shrink
  • Union
  • Intersect
  • Subtract

Use Cases

Modify existing contours

Panels and their use

  • Input
    • Reference contour: The input contour that serves as the only input for unary operations and as first input and reference for the binary operations (provides the volume properties for the second one if they differ in this sense)
    • Compare contour: The input contour that serves as the second input for the binary operations
    • Reference volume: If one of the input contours does not have indexed labelmap representation, and needs a reference volume, a combobox appears here to specify it
  • Operation parameters
    • Expand A (unary): expands contour A by the dimensions specified below
    • Shrink A (unary): shrinkscontour A by the dimensions specified below
    • A union B (binary): Perform union operation on the contours
    • A intersection B (binary): Perform intersection operation on the contours
    • A subtraction B (binary): Perform subtraction operation on the contours
  • Output contour: Select or create contour that will have the output
