Get all data in one level of big image
Create a blocked image using a modified version of image "tumor_091.tif" from the CAMELYON16 data set. The original image is a training image of a lymph node containing tumor tissue. The original image has eight resolution levels, and the finest level has resolution 53760-by-61440. The modified image has only three coarse resolution levels. The spatial referencing of the modified image has been adjusted to enforce a consistent aspect ratio and to register features at each level.
bim = blockedImage('tumor_091R.tif');
Display the entire blocked image at the finest resolution level. Display a grid of the block boundaries.
bshow = bigimageshow(bim,'ResolutionLevel','fine',... 'GridVisible','on','GridLevel',1);
Create a mask of the coarsest resolution level.
First get a single-resolution image of the coarsest resolution level. By default,
gather gets data from the coarsest resolution level.
imcoarse = gather(bim); % Convert the coarse image to grayscale. graycoarse = rgb2gray(imcoarse); % Binarize the grayscale image. In the binarized image, the object of % interest is black and the background is white. bwcoarse = imbinarize(graycoarse); % Take the complement of the binarized image. The resulting mask follows % the convention in which the object of interest is white and the % background is black. mask = imcomplement(bwcoarse);
Create a blocked image containing the mask.
Use the same spatial referencing as the original blocked image. Determine the coarsest resolution level and capture the spatial referencing information of the blocked image at the first two dimensions at that level.
coarsestLevel = bim.NumLevels; originalWorldStartcoarsest = bim.WorldStart(coarsestLevel,1:2); originalWorldEndcoarsest = bim.WorldEnd(coarsestLevel,1:2); % % Create the blocked image for the mask. bmask = blockedImage(mask,'WorldStart',originalWorldStartcoarsest,... 'WorldEnd',originalWorldEndcoarsest);
Display the mask image.
Overlay the mask on the original blocked image. To highlight all blocks that contain at least one nonzero mask pixel, specify an inclusion threshold of
