Multidimensional binary opening with the given structuring element.
The opening of an input image by a structuring element is the dilation of the erosion of the image by the structuring element.
Parameters :  input : array_like
structure : array_like, optional
iterations : {int, float}, optional
output : ndarray, optional
origin : int or tuple of ints, optional


Returns :  out : ndarray of bools

Notes
Opening [R52] is a mathematical morphology operation [R53] that consists in the succession of an erosion and a dilation of the input with the same structuring element. Opening therefore removes objects smaller than the structuring element.
Together with closing (binary_closing), opening can be used for noise removal.
