lvote - Local voting.


lvote [options] targetImage atlasIntensity1 atlasLabels1 [atlasIntensity2 atlasLabels2 [...]]


This tool combines multiple segmentations fro co-registered and reformatted atlases using locally-weighted voting.


Global Toolkit Options (these are shared by all CMTK tools)

Write list of basic command line options to standard output.
Write complete list of basic and advanced command line options to standard output.
Write list of command line options to standard output in MediaWiki markup.
Write man page source in 'nroff' markup to standard output.
Write toolkit version to standard output.
Write the current command line to standard output.
Set verbosity level.
Increment verbosity level by 1 (deprecated; supported for backward compatibility).
Set maximum number of parallel threads (for POSIX threads and OpenMP).

Input Options

Set padding value for input intensity images. Pixels with this value will be ignored. [Default: disabled]

Label Combination Options

Radius of image patch (in pixels) used for local similarity computation. [Default: 5]
Use global weights per atlas to normalize the patch-pased local similarity scores.
Detect and exclude global outliers by removing poorly correlated atlases prior to local voting procedure.

Output Options

File system path for the output image. [Default: lvote.nii ]
