Visualizing Images: Displaying images using the default view

Jump to: navigation, search


When you initially open or load an image dataset, it appears in the image window showing the default view (Figure 2).

If you display a 2D image dataset, the title bar only displays the name of the file and the magnification level only. If you open an image dataset that has more than two dimensions, the title bar displays the name of the file, the position of the image in the dataset, the total number of images in the dataset, and the magnification level.

Datasets with more than two dimensions typically contain many image slices. To manually advance through datasets that contain more than one image, you can use the image slice slider or IconDecrementsImageSlice.jpg , the Decrements image slice icon, or IconIncrementsImageSlice.jpg , the Increments image slice icons in the MIPAV window (Figure 4). You can also use the lightbox view to find and display a particular slice in the image dataset in the default view (refer to "Using the lightbox view to update the image slice displayed in the default view").
