Fit contour to image

This tool automatically adapts an existing contour to the underlying image of a slice. It works quite similarly to the Automatic Contour Detection tool, but the stripe, in this case, is taken from the original contour with a width of 25 pixels. This feature is particularly useful after copy/pasting contours between consecutive slices to correct small differences between consecutive sections of an object. In most cases, the variation between the contours is small and the contour detected in one slice is a good approximation of the following one.

To use the Fit Contour to Image tool, right click on a contour in the Object Explorer and select Fit Contour to Image from the context menu.
