Greetings Vishal,

You're not providing much information about this, so all I can do is guess

My guess is that your line plot is showing values inside the volume, while on the 3D image you're seeing the surface. And if the case is not 2D, then it's very likely that the values on the surface are much higher than inside the volume.

Use the "Slice" filter in the same zone where you have got the line for the plot, so that you can properly compare the results.

Best regards,
