In this paper, an efficient DT-CWT based method for medical ultrasound images despeckling is presented. The ultrasound images are often deteriorated by speckle noise, this noise is a random granular texture that obscures anatomy in ultrasound images and degrades the detectability of low-contrast lesions. Speckle noise occurrence is often undesirable, since it affects the tasks of human interpretation and diagnosis. Different from many other schemes with wavelet transform are used on one side in… CONTINUE READING
