Module Description

This module performs a 4 pixel binary dilation in the axial plane only. This is needed for the CARMA segmentation pipeline as the segmentations are performed in the axial plane and a dilation to start the wall segmentation from an endo segmentation should be performed in the axial plane only.

Use Cases

This module is meant to be used to create an initial wall segmentation from an endo segmentation.

After Dilation
