A New Locally Adaptive Patch Variation Based CT Image Denoising

By Manoj Kumar Manoj Diwakar

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Jan. 2016

The main aim of image denoising is to improve the visual quality in terms of edges and textures of images. In Computed Tomography (CT), images are generated with a combination of hardware, software and radiation dose. Generally, CT images are noisy due to hardware/software fault or mathematical computation error or low radiation dose. The analysis and extraction of medical relevant information from noisy CT images are challenging tasks for diagnosing problems. This paper presents a novel edge preserving image denoising technique based on wavelet transform.
The proposed scheme is divided into two phases. In first phase, input CT image is separately denoised using different patch size where denoising is performed based on thresholding and its method noise thresholding. The outcome of first phase provides more than one denoised images. In second phase, block wise variation based aggregation is performed in wavelet domain.
The final outcomes of proposed scheme are excellent in terms of noise suppression and structure preservation. The proposed scheme is compared with existing methods and it is observed that performance of proposed method is superior to existing methods in terms of visual quality, PSNR and Image Quality Index (IQI).
