atropos: FMM Segmentation

View source: R/atropos.R

Description

A finite mixture modeling (FMM) segmentation approach with possibilities for specifying prior constraints. These prior constraints include the specification of a prior label image, prior probability images (one for each class), and/or an MRF prior to enforce spatial smoothing of the labels. Similar algorithms include FAST and SPM. atropos can also perform multivariate segmentation if you pass a list of images in: e.g. a=c(img1,img2).

Usage

1
2
atropos(a, x, i = "KMeans[3]", m = "[0.2,1x1]", c = "[5,0]",
  priorweight = 0.25, verbose = FALSE, use_random_seed = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

a

One or more scalar images to segment. If priors are not used, the intensities of the first image are used to order the classes in the segmentation output, from lowest to highest intensity. Otherwise the order of the classes is dictated by the order of the prior images.

x

mask image.

i

initialization usually KMeans[N] for N classes or a list of N prior probability images. See Atropos in ANTs for full set of options.

m

mrf parameters as a string, usually "[smoothingFactor,radius]" where smoothingFactor determines the amount of smoothing and radius determines the MRF neighborhood, as an ANTs style neighborhood vector eg "1x1x1" for a 3D image. The radius must match the dimensionality of the image, eg 1x1 for 2D and The default in ANTs is smoothingFactor=0.3 and radius=1. See Atropos for more options.

c

convergence parameters, "[numberOfIterations,convergenceThreshold]". A threshold of 0 runs the full numberOfIterations, otherwise Atropos tests convergence by comparing the mean maximum posterior probability over the whole region of interest defined by the mask x.

priorweight

usually 0 (priors used for initialization only), 0.25 or 0.5.

verbose

boolean

use_random_seed

Initialize internal random number generator with a random seed. Otherwise, initialize with a constant seed number. If this is TRUE, the results are not fully reproducible.

Value

0 – Success
1 – Failure
