Vectorization, check if points coordinate is exist in an image or no

7 views (last 30 days)
Can anyone help me to vectorize this for loop. It is basically ckecking if the x and y coordinate of is one in N matrix or not. Thank you
for i = 1:length(coordinates)
DD = coordinates(i,:);
DDD = N(DD(1),DD(2));
if DDD ==1
%%%if the dicom point is inside the mask
signVector(i) = -1;
%%%if the dicom point is outside the mask
signVector(i) = +1;

signVector = ones(size(coordinates,1),1);
inds = sub2ind(size(N),coordinates(:,1),coordinates(:,2)); % Convert to linear indices
signVector( N(inds)==1 ) = -1;

ii = coordinates;
d3 = N(ii(:,1),ii(:,2));
signVector = -ones(numel(d3),1);
signVector(d3 ~= 1) = 1;

Be careful. If coordinates is an array of (x,y) and N is an array, then you'll need to check N(y, x), not N(x,y) as you have perhaps done. Remember (row, column) is (y, x) NOT (x,y).
