Module Name

Bubble Maker


General Information

This module builds a label image made of bubbles from a set of fiducials and a vector of radii. It is intended for use in combination with the interactive level-set evolution module, providing initialization for the evolution.

Module Description

This module takes as input a set of fiducials, a vector of floats for the radii of the bubbles in physical units, a reference image on which the bubbles will take place, a label for the resulting label map. It provides a label image with spheres centered on the fiducials with radius corresponding to the radii vector position corresponding to the number of the concerned fiducial in the fiducial set.

Examples, Use Cases & Tutorials


Quick Tour of Features and Use

There is only one panel available in this module:


When placing the bubbles for a level-set segmentation, great care has to be taken in order 
to produce the optimal seeding. 

We want to create bubbles that are entirely inside the structure of interest. 

A clever way to proceed is placing the bubbles as far away as possible from 
suspected leaking points in the feature image (Target Preprocessing  should run before this module).
