Dear All,
I have a 3D matrix
I_dd (212x210x245)
and a 2D matrix
occupied_box_indices(4x3) = [156 151 34
156 151 33
156 150 33
177 74 5]
I want to create a vector using these matrcies as below:
I_adress_boxes(1) = I_dd(occupied_box_indices(1,1),occupied_box_indices(1,2),occupied_box_indices(1,3));
I_adress_boxes(2) = I_dd(occupied_box_indices(2,1),occupied_box_indices(2,2),occupied_box_indices(2,3));
I_adress_boxes(3) = I_dd(occupied_box_indices(3,1),occupied_box_indices(3,2),occupied_box_indices(3,3));
I_adress_boxes(4) = I_dd(occupied_box_indices(4,1),occupied_box_indices(4,2),occupied_box_indices(4,3));
With a for loop it can be done very easliy. However, I wonder if is it possible to cerate the I_adress_boxes without for loop and which way do you think is the best in terms of computation time?

Ignoring the excessively verbose variable names that keeps code from being visible without scrolling or breaking line and thereby harder to read to get matching parens right...
I_adress_boxes=I_dd(ind2sub(size(I_dd),occupied_box_indices(:,1), ...
occupied_box_indices(:,2), ...
