with the help of this forum I have made my first steps through the software and so far it’s been wonderful. As a background - I am using the software to make 3D measurements of brain tumors from MRI for my thesis.
For this I use the Segment Editor and Threshold painting, which works great for me. My problem is that my objects are around 1-2 cm3 max and the images I have are not that many pixels. Therefore I end up with a very “unnatural looking” segment because of the pixels.
I found a function in the software (Model Maker) where I can follow the same process, but in the end - after the threshold + painting - can make a model, where the surface is smoothed out via Laplacian. It then renders into a 3D object that appears to be a fairly realistic depiction of a tumor.
Is there any possibility to use this smoothed out object for the Segment Statistics (i.e. to get the volume of the smooth object). I think it is just a simple thing probably, but I cannot seem to figure it out. The segmentations always end up being just the pixels and I cannot use the smooth object (“model”) for the volume statistics.
Any tip/help is much appreciated. Thanks very much in advance!
