Orientation estimation: Conventional techniques and a new non-differential approach

2000 10th European Signal Processing Conference, 2000

The estimation approach discussed in this paper is based on a signal-theoretic and statistical analysis of the notion of orientation. In contrast to other approaches, it does not require the computation of gray value gradients, or the power spectrum of the given signal patch, or quadrature filter outputs, but directly estimates a small central part of the autocovariance function (acf) ...


Non causal adaptive quadratic filters for image filtering and contrast enhancement

1996 8th European Signal Processing Conference (EUSIPCO 1996), 1996

In image contrast enhancement [2, 4, 5], quadratic and more generally polynomial filters are a very popular class of nonlinear filters. These filters exhibit good performances in terms of visual quality, but present some drawbacks such as the elimination of usefull information when using a fixed filter. In this paper we propose a new family of adaptive quadratic filters, where ...

  • Orientation estimation: Conventional techniques and a new non-differential approach

    The estimation approach discussed in this paper is based on a signal-theoretic and statistical analysis of the notion of orientation. In contrast to other approaches, it does not require the computation of gray value gradients, or the power spectrum of the given signal patch, or quadrature filter outputs, but directly estimates a small central part of the autocovariance function (acf) of the signal and derives the sought orientation from the direction of main curvature in the acf origin. The adaptation to the frequency-dependent signal/noise ratio of the signal is performed here by linearly filtering the acf, but not the signal itself. This is in contrast to the usage of pre- filters which are necessary in conventional approaches in order to compensate for the limited capabilities of the discrete differentiation filters. This shortcut which is possible as a consequence of the Wiener-Lee theorem is the key to considerable savings in computational effort.

  • Non causal adaptive quadratic filters for image filtering and contrast enhancement

    In image contrast enhancement [2, 4, 5], quadratic and more generally polynomial filters are a very popular class of nonlinear filters. These filters exhibit good performances in terms of visual quality, but present some drawbacks such as the elimination of usefull information when using a fixed filter. In this paper we propose a new family of adaptive quadratic filters, where a weighted filter mask is adaptively determined according to the minimization of a prediction error. This filter is then used to enhance locally the image contrast. The results we proposed point out the improvement provided by these new filters in comparison with recent approaches [4, 2].

  • A method of medical image enhancement using wavelet analysis

    The paper presents a wavelet-based method for medical image enhancement. A transfer function is derived for transferring wavelet coefficients at various multiresolution levels with different weighting values. Applications of the method to digital radiographic images of chest X-rays are shown. Moreover, in order to validate the effectiveness of the proposed method, we compare the results obtained using the wavelet analysis method to that using the conventional fast Fourier transform (FFT) method. The results show that the proposed method is superior to the FFT method in terms of image enhancement.

  • Fast Gray-Contrast Enhancement of X-Ray Imaging for Observing Tiny Characters

    Low-contrast structure can be found in many kinds of digital images, which makes the images vague and uncertainly. A kind of image enhancement processing algorithm for tiny characters is brought forward based on a no-linear grad- contrast operator. The analysis of the algorithm shows that local regions of the image are enhanced by using the concept of the grad contrast to make image clearer adaptively. Experiments were conducted on real pictures, and the results show that the algorithm is flexible and convenient.

  • Design and implementation of image enhancement based on pyramid architecture

    When inspecting radiographies, some detail information cannot be detected due to large range of gray scales and complex tissue structure. The proposed approach use Gauss-Laplacian pyramid architecture to decompose the structure information of the object, then amplify the detail information and resist noise by non-linear processing at different scales. The enhanced detail information is then added back to the original image iteratively. The whole process is similar to wavelet transformation, but the improved image is more consistent to the characteristics of human being's vision system, thus provides doctors with reliable evidences for diagnosis.

  • Fused logarithmic transform for contrast enhancement

    Presented is a new version of logarithmic transform for image enhancement: fused logarithmic transform (fLog). Based on multi-resolution spline fusion technology, a composite image with a significant improvement in image contrast can be synthesised by fusing the source image and its logarithmic version. Cascaded with other image enhancement techniques, such as histogram equalisation, the fused logarithmic transform could turn the enhanced contrast into more visible details.

  • Radiological Image Enhancement by X-Ray Choppers

    A new scatter control technology consisting a pair of X-ray choppers is being developed to provide improved radiographic contrast and measure geometrical distribution of scattered photons. By placing the choppers (which are rotating by different angular velocities) in two sides of the static object in direction of X-rays, the beam is position-encoded by two frequencies f1 and f2 due to the chopping velocities. The chopped beams reaching to image detectors generate a dynamic image consisting blinking pixels, while some non-chopped beams provide constant gray level of pixels. By extracting the gray value varying with compound frequency f1+f2 or f1-f2, the correct pathways of the beam are really selected, which have no scatter; whilst other provided frequencies including zero, f1, and f2 are due to scattered radiations. Hence, after video capturing by a digital fluoroscopy and digital image processing, an image is obtained which has better contrast in a region under both choppers. Using an assembled prototype device for a constructed phantom showed significantly image improvement.

  • Generalized fuzzy enhancement of image for radiographic testing weld

    Since radiographic testing weld image possesses several shortcomings, such as bad contrast ratio, narrow range of grayscale and fuzzy image, common enhancement method cannot improve contrast ratio and at the same time preserve edges well. Fuzzy enhancement does not modify pixel graylevel in the fuzzy feature space just like histogram and can obtain high-definition image output. In this paper, on the basis of analyzing disadvantages of traditional fuzzy enhancement algorithm a generalized fuzzy enhancement algorithm is put forward. This algorithm can map the image to the generalized fuzzy space through involving the concept of generalized fuzzy set. At the same time, subsection sine function is chosen as fuzzy membership. Using the characteristics of generalized fuzzy transition with big range, image can obtain satisfactory enhancement effect through processing the radiographic testing image with generalized fuzzy enhancement algorithm. And this paper also introduces the method of fuzzy entropy to evaluate the enhancement effect and analyze the characteristics of sine membership function and generalized fuzzy enhancement operator.

  • Recent trends in 2D blind deconvolution for nondestructive evaluation

    Ultrasonic imaging for nondestructive evaluation (NDE) applications is an important process for industrial applications. Such images are constrained by the sensor positions and indirect image formation. In this paper, some recent techniques in the areas of ultrasonic image enhancement and restoration, developed by the authors, are presented. Three new approaches have been presented to enhance the ultrasonic images with minimum or no information of the distortion function or the imaging system characteristics.

  • Fuzzy Enhancement for Color Image Processing

    Enhancement and removing the noises in an image is a critical issue in the digital image processing field. In this paper, the new algorithm introduced to enhancing color image corrupted by Gaussian noise using fuzzy logic which described uncertain features of images with modification of median filter. The performance of the proposed technique have been evaluated and compared to the existing mean and median filter.
