ROI Panel

ROI panel provides a way to add one or more ROI (Region of Interest) above the image. The ROIs may be used to analyse or do filtering in only the ROI defined parts of the dataset.

The implementation of the ROI mode was updated in MIB version 0.998 using the code of the Image Measurement Utility written by Jan Neggers, Eindhoven Univeristy of Technology.
