You also have to calculate the angle based on the ntheta input to the polartrans function. For example, if you specified ntheta = 720, each position in the array would be worth 0.5 deg.
So instead of: Angle_of_rotation = 340+a-360
Try (I think):
Angle_of_rotation = (a + colCentre - xSize/2) * 360/ntheta
Where xSize is the diameter of the whole array.
Make sure you get an angle of zero for the test case where the images are the same.

I have used this function within my code to find the centre of mass of the intensity peak region. However, the angular rotation is not resulting correctly but displayed with four decimal places. Below is the part of the code. The maximum intensity is found at column 361 and row 141 for the first two set of images and a small change for the rest. > > [max_cc_Matrix, maxColumn] = max(max(cc_Matrix)) > [max_cc_Matrix, maxRow] = max(cc_Matrix(:, maxColumn)) > %Angle_of_rotation = maxColumn-360 % for finding rotation using the intensity peak. > cc1_Matrix = cc_Matrix(130:150,340:380); % only the region surrounding the > % maximum peak is considered. > [a,b] = find_com(cc1_Matrix) % calling function for finding centre of mass > Angle_of_rotation = 340+a-360 > A1(k,:) = [k, Angle_of_rotation]; > disp(A) > > This will give the image no and the angle of rotation of a set of images. > Any error in calling the function or calculation? > > Thanks. > Darren
