Compare Masks


Compare Masks

Comparing an automatic segmentation with a ground truth manual segmentation, or validating a segmentation done by a new team member, can be a time-consuming process. This plugin lets you easily compare two masks both quantitatively and visually.​

This plugin only works with Mimics Medical 24 or Mimics 24 and requires an active license.
