Calculate the length of an object in image

Hi everyone,
I need some help in calculating the length of an object from a defined starting point.
I'm analising satellite images for volcanic purposes, so I have the position (in terms of lat and lon) of my starting point. My final goal is to calculate the max distance traveled by a lava flow, which can creates different morpholigies, including curves or ingent lava fields.
I can identify which pixels of the image are related to the lava flow, but I need to create a script that calculate the maximum distance it reached. Currently I'm trying to work with binary images, also trying to explore the bwskel function, but didn't find a solution yet.
Here my matrices and variables: LAT and LON are the latitude and longitude matrices related to the LavaField_example matrices, that is a Logical matrix with 1 for the pixels occupied by lava. This is a real example derived by satellite images acquired during the eruption of Piton de la Fournaise in Sep-Oct 2022, I need the max lenght of the main lava field (the other small cluster must be excluded).
starting pixel
LATstart: -21.2429
LONstart: 55.7092
index (in the LavaField matrix): 9046

Hello Adele,
You could try using the function regionprops and the property MaxFeretDiameter.
thr=10; % Threshold to filter small lava regions
%% Max length of the whole lava field
r=r(r.Area>thr,:); % Retain only the large lava regions
r.MaxFeretDiameter % Max length of the main lava field
ans = 18.7883
% Max distance the lava has flown from the center of the crater
B = bwboundaries(BWcumL);
[xi,yi]=ind2sub([134,134],9046) % Position of the crater
xi = 68
yi = 68
D=pdist2(Bpoints,[xi,yi]); % Distance from the crater to the boundary
% Plot
hold on
A=r.MaxFeretCoordinates{1}; % Coordinates of the start-end point
plot([Bpoints(n,2) xi],[Bpoints(n,1) yi])
l=legend({'MAX lava field length', 'Crater','Max lava field length from the crater'});
Hope this helps!

Thank you very much, the resulting distance is in pixel?
