vol.intensity.to.color: Convert integer intensity image to RGB color string form.

Description Usage Arguments Value Examples

View source: R/vis_volume.R

Description

Convert a gray-scale image defined by intensity values in range '[0, 1]' to an image with identical dimensions that contains an R color string (like '#222222') at each position. The color strings are computed from the intensities, by taking the intensity value as the value for all three RGB channels. I.e., the output is still gray-scale, but defined in RGB space. To make it clear, this function does **not** apply a colormap. It only changes the representation of the data, not the resulting colors.

Arguments

volume

numeric array, typically a 3D image with intensities in range '[0, 1]'. This function now also supports numeric matrices (2D images, slices) and numeric vectors (1D).

scale

numeric or character string, a scaling to apply to the values. Defaults to NULL, which means *no scaling* and requires the values in ‘volume' to be in rage '[0, 1]'. You can pass a number like 255 or the string ’normalize' to scale based on the data. You can pass the string 'normalize_if_needed' to scale only if the data is *outside* the range '[0, 1]', so that data in range '[0.3, 0.5]' would **not** be rescaled to '[0, 1]'.

Value

array (or matrix, or vector) of RGB color strings. All of them will represent gray values.

   vol.intensity.to.color(c(0.0, 0.5, 1.0));
   # output: "#000000" "#808080" "#FFFFFF"
   vol.intensity.to.color(c(20, 186, 240), scale="normalize");
   vol.intensity.to.color(c(20, 186, 240), scale=255);
   vol.intensity.to.color(c(0.0, 0.5, 0.8), scale="normalize");
   vol.intensity.to.color(c(0.0, 0.5, 0.8), scale="normalize_if_needed");
