I have a 3D array called "test" which is 512x512x52. I can display the isosurface using the following line:
which generates the following image:
How can I get the voxels in each enclosed isosurface? I need to calculate the voume of each piece (ideally only those that are spherical). I already know the dX=0.1657, dY=0.1657, and dZ=0.5 of a voxel, I just need to know which pixels are included in each of the distinct enclosed surfaces so I can get a distribution of volumes. I need to do the same for the surface areas.
I read this answer (, but I am confused how they could use that isovalue of -2. Every element in my 3D array is greater than the isovalue I selected to display the image shown above (which is isovalue of 0.51)
Any guidance is sincerely appreciated.

Use bwlabel to separate each blob
