Pre-Processing > *Grayscale Reconstruction

Requires B/W Companion Image

Changes grayscale pixel values based on features in the Companion Image. Available modes are morphological reconstruction, impose minima (ensures that minima in the grayscale image only occur at feature pixels), or set pixels equal to the mean, median, or standard deviation of the pixels within each feature.

1. Mode

  • Inpainting: Smoothly interpolates inward within each marked region from the pixel values on the outer boundary of the region
  • Morphological Reconstruction: Performs morphological reconstruction using the defined markers [1]
  • Impose Minima: Modifies the image so that it only has local minima wherever markers are defined
  • Fill With Mean: Fills the pixels within the marker regions with the mean pixel value of that region
  • Fill With Median: Fills the pixels within the marker regions with the median pixel value of that region
  • Fill With StdDev: Fills the pixels within the marker regions with the standard deviation pixel value of that region
