Description

This plugin threshold an image using the Maximum Entropy algorithm, which aims at maximizing the inter-class entropy. Entropy is defined as -sum(p.*log2(p)), where p contains the histogram bin counts. This thresholding is very useful to segment images with few bright objects on large dark background. In ImageJ/FIJI you can acces this tool in Image->Adjust->Threshold and choose in the list In Aphelion, you can access this tool in Seglmentation->Threshold-> AphImgEntropyThreshold
