# HitMissTransform

HitMissTransform[image,ker]

gives the hit-or-miss transform of image with respect to the composite structuring element ker.

HitMissTransform[image,{ker1,ker2,}]

gives the union of the hit-or-miss transforms for all the structuring elements keri.

HitMissTransform[image,{ker1,ker2,},t]

treats values above t as foreground.

# Details and Options

• HitMissTransform is an image morphology operation that is commonly used to detect positions where a specific pattern such as a corner or an endpoint occurs in the image.
• HitMissTransform works with arbitrary 2D and 3D images.
• The composite structuring element ker is a matrix containing (foreground), (background), and (don't care) elements.
• The structuring element is automatically padded with zeros to have odd dimensions.

## Basic Examples(5)

Find all foreground pixels that are below a background pixel:

Find runs of three foreground pixels below three background pixels:

Find bottom-right corners:

Find all corners by specifying four structuring elements:

Find the larger disks:

## Scope(9)

### Data(4)

Find background pixels on top of foreground pixels:

On a grayscale image, all values above 0 are treated as foreground:

Specify a different foreground/background threshold:

On a color image, all values above 0 are treated as foreground:

Specify a different foreground/background threshold:

Hit-or-miss transformation of a 3D image:

### Kernel(5)

Find all foreground locations that fit a uniform structuring element:

Find all background locations that fit a uniform structuring element:

Find a specific pattern of foreground and background pixels:

Find corners using four structuring elements:

Use a 3D composite structuring element that exactly matches the shape and size of a foreground object:
