Two methods for recovering an image that has been degraded while being processed are presented. The restoration problem is formulated as a constrained optimization problem in which a measure of smoothness based on the second derivatives of the restored image is maximized subject to the constraint that noise energy is equal to the energy in the difference… (More)

Neighbour finger strapping and early mobilisation achieved a full range of movements at both joints when reviewed three weeks after the initial injury.
