imopen() - Image Processing

IM2 = imopen(IM,SE) performs
morphological opening on the grayscale or binary image IM with
the structuring element SE. The argument SE must
be a single structuring element object, as opposed to an array of
objects. The morphological open operation is an erosion followed by
a dilation, using the same structuring element for both operations. IM2 = imopen(IM,NHOOD) performs
opening with the structuring element strel(NHOOD),
where NHOOD is an array of 0's and 1's that specifies
the structuring element neighborhood. gpuarrayIM2 = imopen(gpuarrayIM,___) performs
the operation on a graphics processing unit (GPU) with the structuring
element strel(NHOOD), if NHOOD is
an array of 0s and 1s that specifies
the structuring element neighborhood, or strel(gather(NHOOD)) if NHOOD is
a gpuArray object that specifies the structuring
element neighborhood. This syntax requires the Parallel Computing Toolbox™.Code Generation support:
