vol.from.bin {espadon}R Documentation

Volume class object according to binary selection


The vol.from.bin function selects a part of a "volume" class object of "binary" modality which has the same grid. It is especially useful to restrict voxel data in region of interest.


vol.from.bin(vol, sel.bin, alias = "", description = NULL)



"volume" class object, containing data to restrict.


"volume" class object, of "binary" modality. vol and sel.bin must have the same grid.


Character string, $alias of the created object


Character string, describing the created object. If description = NULL (default value), it will be set to paste (vol$object.alias, "from", sel.bin$object.alias)


Returns a "volume" class object (see espadon.class for class definitions), in which non-selected voxels have the value NA, and selected voxels have the original value of vol.
