TopHatTransform

TopHatTransform[image, ker]
gives the morphological top-hat transform of image with respect to structuring element ker.
TopHatTransform[image, r]
gives the top-hat transform with respect to a range r square.
  • The structuring element ker is a matrix containing 0s and 1s.
  • TopHatTransform automatically pads structuring elements to have odd dimensions.
  • If multiple image channels are present, TopHatTransform operates on each of them separately.
  • TopHatTransform preserves regions smaller than the structuring element whose channel values are larger than their surroundings.
