bigimage Block Interactively
bigimage using a modified version of image "tumor_091.tif" from the CAMELYON16 data set. The original image is a training image of a lymph node containing tumor tissue. The original image has eight resolution levels, and the finest level has resolution 53760-by-61440. The modified image has only three coarse resolution levels. The spatial referencing of the modified image has been adjusted to enforce a consistent aspect ratio and to register features at each level.
bim = bigimage('tumor_091R.tif');
bigimage by using the
bigimageshow function. Overlay a grid that shows the block boundaries at the finest resolution level.
hb = subplot(1,2,1); bigimageshow(bim,'GridVisible','on','GridLevel',1);
Specify the (x,y) coordinate of a block to display. Get the block containing the coordinate. Add a
Point ROI over the displayed
bigimage at the specified coordinate.
coord = [2500,2500]; blk = getBlock(bim,1,coord); hp = drawpoint(hb,'Position',coord);
In the figure, display the block next to the entire
bigimage. You can use
imshow to display the block because the block fits in memory and has a single resolution level.
ha = subplot(1,2,2); imshow(blk,'Parent',ha)
Add a listener to the
Point ROI. When you drag the ROI with the mouse, the figure is updated to show the block containing the current ROI coordinates.
title(hb,'Drag Point to Select Block'); addlistener(hp, ... 'ROIMoved',@(~,~) imshow(getBlock(bim,1,hp.Position),'Parent',ha));
locationWorld — Coordinate of a point
1-by-2 numeric vector
Coordinate of a point, specified as a 1-by-2 numeric vector of the form
y]. The location is specified in world coordinates, which are the pixel
locations relative to the highest resolution level. The position must be a valid

Although there are no plans to remove the
bigimage object and its
getBlock function at this time, switch to
