inScanCountint<3, INF>10The number of points that will be searched to estimate the position of the segment. Default value: 10.
inScanWidthint<1, INF>5The width of each scan field (in pixels). Default value: 5.
inSamplingParamsAvlNet.SamplingParamsParameters controlling the sampling process.
inRidgeScanParamsAvlNet.RidgeScanParamsRidgeScanParams ( ProfileInterpolation: Quadratic4 SmoothingStdDev: 1.0f RidgeWidth: 5 RidgeMargin: 2 MinMagnitude: 5.0f RidgePolarity: Dark )Parameters controlling the ridge extraction process. Default value: RidgeScanParams ( ProfileInterpolation: Quadratic4 SmoothingStdDev: 1.0f RidgeWidth: 5 RidgeMargin: 2 MinMagnitude: 5.0f RidgePolarity: Dark ).
inRidgeSelectionAvlNet.SelectionSelection mode of ridges.

The operation tries to fit a given segment to ridges present in the inImage image. Internally, it performs a series of scans with the ScanSingleRidge_Direct filter along inScanCount specific scan segments which length is always equal to the inFittingField width and cannot be less than 4. The found points are then used to determine the actual position of the segment in the image. Only inMaxIncompleteness fraction of these scans may fail. If the fitting according to the given parameters is not possible, outSegment is set to Nil.
