Module Description

This module can be used in order to compute co-ocurence texture features over the input image. The computation of the run length features is based on the grey level Co-ocurence matrix (GLCM) computed with itk::itkScalarImageToTextureFeaturesFilter.
The GLCM matrix describes the texture of the whole image, it is then used to compute the following run length texture features:

  • Energy
  • Entropy
  • Correlation
  • Inverse difference moment
  • Inertia
  • Cluster shade
  • Cluster prominence
  • Haralick correlation

Use Cases

  • Inputs:
    • Input volume [index: 0] : Input Volume
    • Input mask [-s --inputMask] (None) : A mask defining the region over which texture features will be calculated
    • Inside Mask Value [-i --inputMask] (1) : The pixel value that defines the ”inside” of the mask
    • Number of Intensity bins [-b --binNumber] (10) : The number of intensity bins
    • Pixel Intensity Min [-p --pixelIntensityMin] (0) : Minnimum of the pixel intensity range over which the features will be calculated
    • Pixel Intensity Max [-P --pixelIntensityMax] (4000) : Maximum of the pixel intensity range over which the features will be calculated
  • Outputs:
    • Energy [output] : Energy feature value
    • Entropy [output] : Entropy feature value
    • Correlation [output] : Correlation feature value
    • Inverse difference moment [output] :Inverse difference moment feature value
    • Inertia [output] : Inertia feature value
    • Cluster shade [output] : Cluster shade feature value
    • Cluster prominence [output] : Cluster prominence feature value
    • Haralick correlation [output] : Haralick correlation feature value
  • Advanced:
    • Output Vector [output] : Output vector containing all the feature value stored in the same order than previously
