Extension Description

ErodeDilateLabel is a simple CLI module that performs binary erosion and dilation of a specified label. This CLI uses ITK's BinaryErodeIMageFilter and BinaryDilateImageFilter based on N.Nikopoulos et al. "An efficient algorithm for 3d binary morphological transformations with 3d structuring elements for arbitrary size and shape". IEEE Transactions on Image Processing. Vol. 9. No. 3. 2000. pp. 283-286.

Use Cases

  • Evaluation of ablation margin in image-guided percutaneous ablations
    • The dilation feature can generate target volume (a volume that has to be covered by ablation volume to achieve complete tumor ablation) using a given tumor margin
