getclim determines threshold values such that 2% (by default) of
values at the top and bottom of the data range will be mapped
to the extremes of the colormap.
For datasets with a few outliers that influence the range, getclim
is superior to the default behaviour of using the min and max
of the dataset.
Usage: threshVals = getclim(imdata, dataFraction)
imdata: numeric array representing an image to be displayed
dataFraction: fraction of voxels to clip at each end (default 0.02)
threshVals: column vector of values to use for clims in imshow
I = peaks(200);
min(I(:)), max(I(:)) % -6.5487, 8.1059
threshVals = getclim(I) % -4.2936, 5.8228
I2 = I;
I2(153,106) = 3*I(153,106);
min(I2(:)), max(I2(:)) % -6.5487, 23.5936
threshVals = getclim(I2) % -4.2936, 5.8228

Thanks for the comment, Jurgen. I agree that a single output vector makes more sense -- I've updated the file accordingly.
A better version of matlabs stretchlim.
- Stretchlim returns 0-1 normalized thresholds, regardless of input class.
- Stretchlim fails with int16 even though the help says it can be used
- Any data from single or double class must be in the 0-1 range.
That said, I personally prefer 1 output vector containing both values, like with stretchlim.
Output a single vector as per Jurgen's suggestion
