De-Noising of Photoacoustic Microscopy Images by Deep Learning

  title={De-Noising of Photoacoustic Microscopy Images by Deep Learning},
  author={Da He and Jiasheng Zhou and Xiaoyu Shang and Jiajia Luo and Sung-Liang Chen},
As a hybrid imaging technology, photoacoustic microscopy (PAM) imaging suffers from noise due to the maximum permissible exposure of laser intensity, attenuation of ultrasound in the tissue, and the inherent noise of the transducer. De-noising is a post-processing method to reduce noise, and PAM image quality can be recovered. However, previous de-noising techniques usually heavily rely on mathematical priors as well as manually selected parameters, resulting in unsatisfactory and slow de…

Sparse-representation-based denoising of photoacoustic images

This paper investigates the use of K-means singular value decomposition (K-SVD) to eliminate noise and enhance the effect of vasculature in the PA images and reveals a better denoising capability of PA images when compared with standard Wiener and wavelet-based filtering.

Convolutional neural network for resolution enhancement and noise reduction in acoustic resolution photoacoustic microscopy.

A modified fully dense U-Net based architecture was trained on simulated AR-PAM images and performance of the trained network on in vivo rat vasculature imaging validated that noise-free, high resolution images can be obtained using this method.

Deep Learning Improves Contrast in Low-Fluence Photoacoustic Imaging

A denoising method using a multi-level wavelet-convolutional neural network to map low fluence illumination source images to its corresponding high fluence excitation map is proposed and quantitative and qualitative results show a significant potential to remove the background noise and preserve the structures of target.

Low-Dose CT Image Denoising Using a Generative Adversarial Network With Wasserstein Distance and Perceptual Loss

This paper introduces a new CT image denoising method based on the generative adversarial network (GAN) with Wasserstein distance and perceptual similarity that is capable of not only reducing the image noise level but also trying to keep the critical information at the same time.

Photoacoustic Source Detection and Reflection Artifact Removal Enabled by Deep Learning

It is shown that the CNN-based information can be displayed in a novel artifact-free image format, enabling us to effectively remove reflection artifacts from photoacoustic images, which is not possible with traditional geometry-based beamforming.

Ultrasound Image Enhancement Using Structure Oriented Adversarial Network

Experimental evaluations show that the proposed DRNN outperforms the state-of-the-art despeckling approaches in terms of the structural similarity index measure, peak signal to noise ratio, edge preservation index, and speckle region's signal-to- noise ratio.

Deep Learning Enables Superior Photoacoustic Imaging at Ultralow Laser Dosages

A deep learning method called the multitask residual dense network is proposed to overcome the challenge of high excitation laser dosage, limited imaging speed, and imperfect image quality in OR‐PAM in clinical applications.

Non local means denoising in photoacoustic imaging

Photoacoustic (PA) imaging has the ability to visualize human organs with high spatial resolution and high contrast. Like digital images, PA images are contaminated with random noise due to some

Wavelet de-noising method with adaptive threshold selection for photoacoustic tomography

This paper proposes a new adaptive wavelet threshold de-noising (aWTD) algorithm, and applies it in photoacoustic tomography to increase the PA signal’s SNR without sacrificing the signal fidelity and imaging speed.
