ITKBinaryContourImage

=====================

Group (Subgroup)

ITKImageProcessing (ITKImageProcessing)

Description

Labels the pixels on the border of the objects in a binary image.

BinaryContourImageFilter takes a binary image as input, where the pixels in the objects are the pixels with a value equal to ForegroundValue. Only the pixels on the contours of the objects are kept. The pixels not on the border are changed to BackgroundValue.

The connectivity can be changed to minimum or maximum connectivity with SetFullyConnected() . Full connectivity produces thicker contours.

Parameters

Name Type Description
FullyConnected bool Set/Get whether the connected components are defined strictly by face connectivity or by face+edge+vertex connectivity. Default is FullyConnectedOff. For objects that are 1 pixel wide, use FullyConnectedOn.
BackgroundValue double Set/Get the background value used to mark the pixels not on the border of the objects.
ForegroundValue double Set/Get the foreground value used to identify the objects in the input and output images.
