Volume Projection

Volume projection along any orthogonal axis using arithmetic operations.


This Xtra creates a 2D image that is the projection of the volume along one of the main axes using numpy from python. Install it by unzipping the archive and copying the contents of this directory into an AMIRA_LOCAL directory.

The projection can be one of the following: minimum, maximum, sum, mean, median, standard deviation, or variance. The resulting 2D data are aligned at the minimum or maximum coordinates of the input data bounding box along the axis direction. Press apply to run the script. The output will be the projected 2D image, which can be visualized using an Ortho Slice module, for instance. You may also want to have a look at the "Image Stack Projection" module that provides different projection capabilities along the Z axis.
