Dear experts, I need to calculate an overlap between a binary 3D image (mri segment in .nii format) and a mask in MNI space (.nii) with the following dimensions (51, 75, 55). For this, I need to multiply both arrays with each other. Because the dimensions of my original 3D image were larger (153, 225, 165) than that of the mask, I needed to resize the 3D image first to get the same dimensions (51, 75, 55). I don't have an image processing toolbox within MATLAB, so I resized my original image with a for loop, as follows:
seg = spm_read_vols(spm_vol('/somedir/xxx/wseg.nii')); %the original 3D segmentation
for j=1:55 seg2(:,:,j)=imresize(seg(:,:,j),[51 75]); end
When I do this, I seem to loose information, as the total sum of my new array (seg2) becomes zero, while that of seg is not. I am searching for a solution for this problem. Thank you in advance.
