Any peaks that are broad or elongated are replaced with a single voxel that is located at the center of mass of the original voxels.
peaks (ND-image) – An image containing
Truevalues indicating peaks in the distance transform
image – An array with the same number of isolated peaks as the original image, but fewer total
- Return type
The center of mass of a group of voxels is used as the new single voxel, so if the group has an odd shape (like a horse shoe), the new voxel may not lie on top of the original set.
