##### Plot Result of Scan Test

Computes or plots an image showing the likelihood ratio test statistic for the scan test, or the optimal circle radius.

Keywords
htest, spatial
##### Usage
# S3 method for scan.test
plot(x, …, what=c("statistic", "radius"),
do.window = TRUE) # S3 method for scan.test
as.im(X, …, what=c("statistic", "radius"))
##### Arguments
x,X

Result of a scan test. An object of class "scan.test" produced by scan.test.

Arguments passed to plot.im to control the appearance of the plot.

what

Character string indicating whether to produce an image of the (profile) likelihood ratio test statistic (what="statistic", the default) or an image of the optimal value of circle radius (what="radius").

do.window

Logical value indicating whether to plot the original window of the data as well.

##### Details

These functions extract, and plot, the spatially-varying value of the likelihood ratio test statistic which forms the basis of the scan test.

If the test result X was based on circles of the same radius r, then as.im(X) is a pixel image of the likelihood ratio test statistic as a function of the position of the centre of the circle.

If the test result X was based on circles of several different radii r, then as.im(X) is a pixel image of the profile (maximum value over all radii r) likelihood ratio test statistic as a function of the position of the centre of the circle, and as.im(X, what="radius") is a pixel image giving for each location $u$ the value of r which maximised the likelihood ratio test statistic at that location.

The plot method plots the corresponding image.

##### Value

The value of as.im.scan.test is a pixel image (object of class "im"). The value of plot.scan.test is NULL.
