compress a 3D volume into a 2D image

8 views (last 30 days)
Feature extraction for classification purposes is more complex in 3D compared with 2D images. The corresponding functions work with 2D images mostly. That is why I was wondering if that would be possible to use a (non)linear tranformation of the 3 intensity values at each (x,y) coordinates of a 3D volume to find a single intensity value. Then, the question is can this sort of 2D projection be used by feature extraction functions to develop accurate classifiers.

Perhaps, if your objects are cylinders (don't depend on one of the directions).

Could you project the data along each axis (using mean(data,dim) for instance) to get 3 two dimensional images and then do the training on them?
