ITKImageProcessing (ITKImageProcessing)

Description

Produce a binary image where foreground is the regional minima of the input image.

Regional minima are flat zones surrounded by pixels of greater value.

If the input image is constant, the entire image can be considered as a minima or not. The SetFlatIsMinima() method let the user choose which behavior to use.

Parameters

Name Type Description
BackgroundValue double Set/Get the value used as "background" in the output image. Defaults to NumericTraits::NonpositiveMin() .
ForegroundValue double Set/Get the value in the output image to consider as "foreground". Defaults to maximum value of PixelType.
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.
FlatIsMinima bool Set/Get wether a flat image must be considered as a minima or not. Defaults to true.
