Some Basic Examples: Masking and Summing

As an example of the EMMA functions presented thus far, we will explore sample code for both masking and summing/integrating images from a dynamic study. The MINC file used in this example will be one of the HO CBF studies from /local/matlab/toolbox/emma/examples. To make accessing these files easier, you may want to create a symbolic link in one of your directories using the command:

     ln -s /local/matlab/toolbox/emma/examples examples
That way, the file /local/matlab/toolbox/emma/examples/yates_19445.mnc can be accessed as simply examples/yates_19445.mnc. In the remainder of this section, it will be assumed that the symbolic link examples exists in the current directory.
