Hello I have a 104x1024 logical.
when i use imshow(figure) to display it, it looks something like this
how do i get the diameter calculated?
i had already thought about the area but i don't know how. this is an edited polar plot image
Thanks a lot

This is not a perfect circle, so which diameter do you want? Width, height, maximal, minimal, other?

You can get the Equivalent Circular Diameter from regionprops(). This is the diameter of the blob if you were to smoosh and mold that same shape into a perfectly circular shape. In other words, the diameter of a perfect circle with the same number of pixels as your irregularly shaped blob.
props = regionprops(mask, 'EquivDiameter');
% Extract it from the structure into a simple variable.
ecd = props.EquivDiameter % This is the "Equivalent Circular Diameter".

Let A be your logical of 1024*1024
[y,x] = find(A) ; % get all th points with 1
C = [mean(x) mean(y)] ; % this gives the center of the region
% Get the boundary
idx = boundary(x,y) ;
bx = x(idx) ; by = y(idx) ;
% Get ditance
d = sqrt((C(1)-bx).^2+(C(2)-by).^2) ;
mind = min(d) ;
maxd = max(d) ;
