Abstract

Noise Removal is a major issue in Biomedical Image Processing. Ultrasound spectroscopy and Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI) require highly efficient output images for analysis. Various techniques exist in literature for filtering noisy images. The type of filtering is highly dependent upon the noise density, window size of the filter and the type of noise. In this paper, various filtering techniques for noise removal from MRI images are discussed. Two types of filtering approaches are employed in noise removal: Linear filtering and Non-Linear filtering. Each type is described in detail along-with their advantages as well as disadvantages in a particular domain. The filters are implemented in MATLAB.
