MinMaxValuesCommand Class

Gets the minimum and maximum intensity values present in a 12 or 16-bit grayscale or a 48 or 64-bit color image. This class is available in the Medical Toolkits.

  • The minimum and maximum values can be used to create a lookup table, for use in the WindowLevelCommand class.
  • For signed images, the minimum intensity and the maximum intensity values can be negative.
  • This class supports 12 and 16-bit grayscale images. Support for 12 and 16-bit grayscale images is available only in the Document/Medical toolkits.
  • This command does not support 32-bit grayscale images.
  • LEADTOOLS supports two types of LUTs for 10-16-bit grayscale images (8-bit LUT and 16-bit LUT). Typical grayscale image display and processing is done using an 8-bit LUT. But, you can also use a 16-bit LUT, which offers more precision. Some special video cards and monitors also support display of grayscale images using a 16-bit LUT.

Run the MinMaxValuesCommand on an image and gets the minimum and maximum pixel values for an image.
