What type of images are required for voxel classification?

In an algorithm, voxel classification approach is used to perform image segmentation. The aim was classifying voxels either as cartilage or background in MRI image. The project has to be completed in matlab.

MRI images has .dcm extension, it may have .avi and other types too, I am not sure. Is it possible to perform voxel classification on .dcm images or it require another type of images?

• Do you mean, when operating on voxels, we operate on array/matrix created from an image? As I read about voxel, its related to 3d image, pixels are related to 2d image - which is .dcm in this case. Would you please give a simplest example about this? Any pointer/link would be helpful. Dec 21, 2015 at 10:31
