This paper introduces an automated image processing procedure capable of processing complementary deoxyribonucleic acid (cDNA) microarray images. Microarray data is contaminated by noise and suffers from broken edges and visual artifacts. Without the utilization of a filter, subsequent tasks such as spot identification and gene expression determination(More)
In this paper a new approach to the problem of impulsive noise reduction in color images is presented. The basic idea behind the new image ÿltering technique is the maximization of the similarities between pixels in a predeÿned ÿltering window. The improvement introduced to this technique lies in the adaptive establishing of parameters of the similarity(More)
This paper presents a new cost-effective, adaptive multichannel filter taking advantage of switching schemes, robust order-statistic theory and approximation of the multivariate dispersion. Introducing the statistical control of the switching between the vector median and the identity operation , the developed filter enhances the detail-preserving(More)
This paper presents a novel filtering framework capable of processing cDNA microarray images. The proposed two-component adaptive vector filters integrate well-known concepts from the areas of fuzzy set theory, nonlinear filtering, multidimensional scaling and robust order-statistics. By appropriately setting the weighting coefficients in a generalized(More)
This paper introduces a class of nonlinear multichannel filters capable of removing impulsive noise in color images. The here-proposed generalized selection weighted vector filter class constitutes a powerful filtering framework for multichannel signal processing. Previously defined multichannel filters such as vector median filter, basic vector directional(More)
In this paper, a class of weighted vector directional filters (WVDFs) based on the selection of the output sample from the multichannel input set is analyzed and optimized. The WVDF output minimizes the sum of weighted angular distances to other input samples from the filtering window. Dependent on the weighting coefficients, the class of the WVDFs can be(More)
