[Segmentation] Watershed tool freezes when slider and threshold are set to a low value
Open, NormalPublic

Description

This is one task in the checklist, which says:

Theory:
Set both sliders to a small value = nothing should happen...

Reality:
Setting to small limits /Setting them to the lower limit = Nothing, literally, nothing happens anymore, Workbench not responding anymore.
(Stopped after 5 mins each because didn't expect anything to happen)

Computation with Level = 0,6 took 2 min but produces results

We should take the opportunity to discuss the general sense of some segmentation tools. It appears to me that quite a few tools are just there because the algorithm is mentioned in the ITK book. In particular when looking at the abstract parameters that the tools offer I highly doubt they are of use for anyone at all. "alpha", "beta", "gamma", "level", you name it. We should consider to actually remove those tools and invest our time instead in improving tools people use or the integration of the DL algorithms of our department.

BTW I also tested with small values and the computation did at least finish after 2 minutes on my desktop PC.

floca lowered the priority of this task from Unbreak Now! to Normal.May 5 2021, 11:54 AM
floca moved this task from Cycle to Segmentation on the MITK (v2021.10) board.

This issue should be postponed until T28523: Evaluate MITK segmentation survey (to now the new priority) and T27437: Migrate MITK to use ITK 5.x (check for performance improvments due to refactored ITK) is done.
