FFFF.2 Example

The example describes the blending of five series:

Series 1: the anatomical series which is stored as a single volume in an Enhanced MR Image object having no Color LUT attached. The Image will be displayed with a Relative Opacity of 0.7.

Series 2: the DTI series which is stored as an Enhanced MR Color Image object means that no RGB transformation is needed. The Image will be displayed with a Relative Opacity of 1 - 0.7.

Series 3: Reading task captured in a Parametric Map with Color LUT Winter attached to it. The Image will be displayed with threshold range 6% to 50%. Opacity will be equal divided with the other two task maps.

Series 4: Listening task captured in a Parametric Map with Color LUT Fall attached to it. The Image will be displayed with threshold range 9% to 60%. Opacity will be equal divided with the other two task maps.

Series 5: Silent word generation task captured in a Parametric Map with Color LUT Spring attached to it. The Image will be displayed with threshold range 7% to 75%. Opacity will be equal divided with the other two task maps.

The result of the first blending operation (FOREGROUND) will be blended with the result of the second blending operation (EQUAL) through a FOREGROUND blending operation with a Relative Opacity of 0.6.
