Analysis Of Various Quality Metrics for Medical Image Processing

  title={Analysis Of Various Quality Metrics for Medical Image Processing},
  author={Ravi Kumar and Munish Rattan},
Abstract—This paper presents the comparative analysis of various quality metrics for medical image processing. Measurement of image quality is important for many image processing applications. Image quality assessment is closely related to image similarity assessment in which quality is based on the differences (or similarity) between a degraded image and the original, unmodified image. Objective methods have been used for expressing the image quality because these are automatic and…

Subjective Versus Objective Assessment for Magnetic Resonance Images

A database of 210 MR images which contains ten reference images and 200 distorted images is presented and it is shown that the DMOS values are close to the objective FR-IQA metrics.

A Review of Image Quality Assessment (IQA): SNR, GCF, AD, NAE, PSNR, ME

In this study, a few selected IQAs was reviewed and the primary purpose is to study and explore the function and mathematical equation for each IQAs that was effected on non-uniform images.

Analysis of Wavelet Transform for Image Denoising with MSE

The method adopted in this report to reconstruct an image from a noisy image is by far the best technique encountered till now and the value of PSNR calculated by this technique is the highest obtained till now.

Efficient representation of texture details in medical images by fusion of Ripplet and DDCT transformed images

The transformation of images using Ripplet followed by DDCT ensures a more efficient method for the representation of images with preservation of its fine details like edges and textures.

A Review on Statistical Analysis of Filters on Various Noises in MRI and USG Images

This paper represents the complete review of various filters and their comparative analysis which can be used with statistical parameters in digital image processing and their relative study with the aid of MATLAB simulation to relieve the selection of best filter for a particular noise introduced in MRI and USG image.

Image Restoration using Hybrid Super Resolution Error Model

A hybrid model has been proposed and implemented that provides the above said features by defining Gaussian and Laplacian noise models for the medical images, so that better image quality can be achieved.

A Comparative Analysis of Various Segmentation Techniques on Dental Images

An exhaustive survey of four widely used segmentation techniques has been carried out and the performance comparison of each method within Edge detection, Thresholding, Deformable model and Clustering segmentation technique is provided.



A New Method to Remove Noise in Magnetic Resonance and Ultrasound Images

In the proposed method median filter is modified by adding more features, and the quality of the output images is measured by the statistical quantity measures: peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR), signal- to-no noise ratio (SNR) and root mean square error (RMSE).

Image quality assessment: from error visibility to structural similarity

A structural similarity index is developed and its promise is demonstrated through a set of intuitive examples, as well as comparison to both subjective ratings and state-of-the-art objective methods on a database of images compressed with JPEG and JPEG2000.

Why is image quality assessment so difficult?

In this paper, insights on why image quality assessment is so difficult are provided by pointing out the weaknesses of the error sensitivity based framework and a new philosophy in designing image quality metrics is proposed.

Enhancement of Aerial and Medical Image using Multi resolution pyramid

4 Abstract— Image enhancement has been an area of active research for decades. Most of the studies are aimed at improving the quality of image for better visualization. An approach for contrast

Image quality measures and their performance

Although some numerical measures correlate well with the observers' response for a given compression technique, they are not reliable for an evaluation across different techniques, and a graphical measure called Hosaka plots can be used to appropriately specify not only the amount, but also the type of degradation in reconstructed images.

A universal image quality index

Although the new index is mathematically defined and no human visual system model is explicitly employed, experiments on various image distortion types indicate that it performs significantly better than the widely used distortion metric mean squared error.

Reliability of Objective Picture Quality Measures

The results show that some objective measures correlate well with the perceived picture quality for a given compression algorithm but they are not reliable for an evaluation across dieren t algorithms, and objective measures are found, which serve well in all tested image compression systems.

Structural Similarity Quality Metrics in a Coding Context: Exploring the Space of Realistic Distortions

This work evaluates SSIM metrics and proposes a perceptually weighted multiscale variant of SSIM, which introduces a viewing distance dependence and provides a natural way to unify the structural similarity approach with the traditional JND-based perceptual approaches.


It is imperative for a video service system to be able to realize and quantify the video quality degradations that occur in the system, so that it can maintain, control and possibly enhance the quality of the video data.
