Module Description

Program title BRAINSROIAuto - Foreground masking tool
Program version 2.4.1
Program documentation-url


Usage

BRAINSROIAuto finds the foreground tissue region in an image.

  • IO
    • Input Image Volume [--inputVolume] : The input image for finding the largest region filled mask.
    • Output Mask [--outputROIMaskVolume] : The ROI automatically found from the input image.
    • Output Image Clipped by ROI [--outputClippedVolumeROI] : The inputVolume clipped to the region of the brain mask.


  • Configuration Parameters
    • Otsu Percentile Threshold [--otsuPercentileThreshold] : Parameter to the Otsu threshold algorithm. Default value: 0.01
    • Otsu Correction Factor [--thresholdCorrectionFactor] : A factor to scale the Otsu algorithm's result threshold, in case clipping mangles the image. Default value: 1.0
    • Closing Size [--closingSize] : The Closing Size (in millimeters) for largest connected filled mask. This value is divided by image spacing and rounded to the next largest voxel number. Default value: 9.0
    • ROIAuto Dilate Size [--ROIAutoDilateSize] : This flag is only relavent when using ROIAUTO mode for initializing masks. It defines the final dilation size to capture a bit of background outside the tissue region. At setting of 10mm has been shown to help regularize a BSpline registration type so that there is some background constraints to match the edges of the head better. Default value: 0.0
    • Output Image Pixel Type [--outputVolumePixelType] : The output image Pixel Type is the scalar datatype for representation of the Output Volume. Default value: short
