#include "ltwrappr.h"

L_INT LBitmap::TissueEqualize(uFlags)

L_UINT uFlags;


Performs equalization between the hard tissue and the soft tissue in X-ray images, resulting in better quality for better interpretation and understanding of the image.

Parameter Description
uFlags Flags that indicate the type of processing. Possible values are:
  Value Meaning
  TISSUEEQUALIZE_INTENSIFY [0x00000002] Performs tissue equalization with contrast intensification.
  TISSUEEQUALIZE_SIMPLIFY [0x00000001] Performs tissue equalization with simplification of intensity values across the image.



The function was successful.

< 1

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.


If the bitmap has a region, the effect will be applied on the region only; otherwise the whole image will be processed.

This function supports DICOM images.

This function does not support 32-bit grayscale images. It returns the error code ERROR_GRAY32_UNSUPPORTED if a 32-bit grayscale image is passed to this function.
