The smoothness value determines the steepness of the mapping curve. After you use the mouse to click on and move the knobs that are used to change the threshold and smoothness values, you can use the left and right arrow keys to move these knobs one value at a time.
This section contains a list of loosely organized list of SNAP features that can make it a more powerful tool than it may appear at first look. Select the 3D Trackball Tool Press and hold the left mouse button and move the mouse tutorual rotate the 3D view.

Tiny bubbles will appear on the surface of the segmented structure under the mouse. Both the amount of memory and the time required to compete a segmentation can be reduces by selecting a sub-region of the image on which to perform segmentation.
As soon as you change some of the parameters, the SnAP slice windows will display the feature image instead of the grey image. Select the 3D Crosshair Tool Position the mouse over any point on the caudates and click the left mouse button.
Automatic Segmentation using Region Competition Snakes This section gives step by step instructions on segmenting an image using the region competition snake in last section’s terminology, snake evolution that uses the region feature image. In Section 4we have created a manual segmentation. If the selection box disappears in one of the slice windows, that means that the crosshairs position is outside of the selection box.
Simply select this tool, position the mouse over a rendered segmentation results e. Use the Radius slider to change the radius of the bubble.
If you uncheck the Preview result checkbox, the slice windows will only reflect the values of the parameters when you press the Apply button. You can, however, follow the general directions of this section using a different image, but you will have to use your own judgement in selecting various parameters. This step of the wizard is used to position spherical bubbles to that initialize the snake, as described in the previous section.
These are actions that the uttorial should perform in the course of the tutorial, such as clicking on buttons and entering text. This is iti about SNAP that is tutorail in order to use the ik.
Press the Update Mesh button below the 3D window to render the results. We have to make sure that the appropriate combination of the current drawing label and background draw over label is selected. Before starting automatic segmentation, create a manual segmentation as described in Section 4 using the same label that you wish to use for snake segmentation. This tool is used to mark points on the surface of the 3D rendering of the segmentation results with the active drawing label.
SNAP Tutorial and User’s Manual
If your input device does not have a right or a middle mouse button, use the following combinations keyboard mouse combinations:. We recommend to leave the noise reduction setting at zero. At the top of the control panel is located a menu barwhich is used for saving and loading images, for setting options, and for accessing the help system.
To remove a bubble, select it in the list of bubbles underneath the Radius slider and press the Remove bubble button. We will see how to use the control panel in the subsequent sections. The Snake Parameters window is shown below. The Meta format is recommended. We will now adjust the region of interest by dragging the sides of the selection box. SnAP lets you save and load feature images.
SNAP does not require a deep understanding of tuorial underlying mathematics and computer science to use. See the list of publications at http: You can adjust the crosshairs position in one of the adjacent slices.
The option to resample an image has been added to SNAP especially for dealing with such images.
Select ‘right caudate’ as the current drawing label, and select ‘caudates’ tutoria, label used for automatic segmentation as the label to draw over, as shown below. We will use the 3D scalpel tool to assign different labels to the left and right caudate nuclei.
Make sure that the slice is fully visible in each the slice windows by pressing the Reset View buttons underneath the slice windows.
Using the clear snzp as the active drawing label, you can erase parts of the segmentation that have leaked outside of the caudates. The snake parameter window also lets you save snake evolution parameter settings to a file and to load them from a file. The size of the box will be adjusted as you move the mouse.
