Calculate Region Properties Using Image Region Analyzer

This example shows how to calculate the properties of regions in binary images using the Image Region Analyzer app.


Pixel Values

To determine the values of one or more pixels in an image and return the values in a variable, use the impixel function.

Image Region Properties

Image regions, also called objects, connected components, or blobs, can be contiguous or discontiguous.

Distance Transform

Describes how to use the bwdist function to compute the distance transform of an image

Intensity Profile of Images

The intensity profile of an image is the set of intensity values taken from regularly spaced points along a line segment or multiline path in an image.

Contour Plot of Image Data

A contour is a path in an image along which the image intensity values are equal to a constant.
